Ping Pong Parlour serving up fun at Prince Bishops Shopping Centre!

by | Nov 7, 2018 | News

Shoppers at the Prince Bishops Shopping Centre, Durham can now take a break from shopping and enjoy playing some free table tennis as the centre opens a pop up Ping Pong Parlour.

The parlour can be found at the rear of M&Co. and is open during normal working hours. Everyone is welcome to drop in to play on the table tennis tables in the parlour, to join in the fun, simply grab a bat (provided) and play – absolutely free of charge!

Prince Bishops Shopping Centre and County Durham Sport 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 up in over 30 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 unexpected, non-traditional places.

Other initiatives delivered by Table Tennis England helping to achieve this, include Ping!, the public street ping pong festival which bounces into over 20 towns and cities every summer, Loop which creates opportunities for workplaces, sports clubs and universities to introduce table tennis, and Ping in the Community which provides opportunities for community organisations to kickstart table tennis.
