News of a new initiative from Table Tennis England.
You may have noticed that table tennis tables have started popping up again in public areas of Birmingham such as the Markets and the Custard Factory; Birmingham is one of the 19 cities across England to host Ping!, the summer table tennis festival which brings ping pong to the people. With social table tennis on the rise, Ping! takes the game out onto the streets, where it can reach thousands of people each day. It’s great fun, good for health and easy to learn. Ping! is delivered nationally by Table Tennis England, the sport’s National Governing Body.
Now, building on the success of Ping!, Table Tennis England has launched ‘Loop’, an initiative to encourage participation in social table tennis in a range of non-sporting settings.
Loop introduces ping pong to the workplace, helping businesses of all sizes and across all industries bring the benefits of physical activity to their employees. We all know that the best way to clear the mind, loosen the limbs and get the juices flowing during a busy working day is to get up from our desks and have a short break. Rather than trudging down to the coffee machine though, the turn-to activity becoming among forward thinking businesses is table tennis.
Ping pong, wiff-waff: call it what you will; is enjoyed by 101,000 people weekly according to the latest figures from Sport England’s Active People Survey. Table Tennis England, the sport’s official governing body, has recognised this trend with the launch of ‘Loop’; an initiative to engage adults in social table tennis in a range of non-sporting settings, including the office.
Loop introduces ping pong to the workplace, helping businesses of all sizes and across all industries bring the health and well-being benefits of physical activity to their employees. Teamed up with Sport England and a series of equipment suppliers, Loop offers superb Beat the Boss packages which include tables, bats, balls, trophies and heaps of games ideas at vastly discounted prices, starting at just £160 all inclusive.
