Shoppers at The Mall Walthamstow will soon be able to enjoy playing some free table tennis as the centre opened a FREE pop up Ping Pong Parlour on Monday 30 July for 6 weeks.
The parlour can be found at the town centre entrance next to Prett and will be open daily between 9am and 6pm. Everyone is welcome to drop in to play on one of the 3 table tennis tables in the parlour which promises to be an exciting attraction for the community. The tables will pop up from Monday 30 July, to join in the fun, simply grab a bat from the side of the table and play – absolutely free of charge!
The Mall Walthamstow is delighted to have teamed up with the Ping! and Loop team at Table Tennis England, the sport’s National Governing Body, to bring this exciting project to life.
Ping Pong Parlours have already opened in several other shopping centres nationwide and form part of Table Tennis England’s vision to inspire people to get active and lead happier, healthier lifestyles by introducing table tennis into the places they already spend time in their everyday lives.
The other initiatives delivered by Table Tennis England helping to achieve this, include Ping!, the public street ping pong festival which bounces into 24 towns and cities every summer, and Loop which creates opportunities for workplaces, community venues and sports clubs to introduce table tennis.
