Community table tennis was given a boost when a new table tennis table was installed by Horsham District Council in the Forum area of Horsham Town Centre on Saturday 19 October.
The new table was generously donated by local (West Grinstead) supplier UK Table Tennis.
To launch the arrival of the new table, the Council’s Sports Development team invited along Horsham Table Tennis Club coaches Bilal Rehman-Furs, Barrie Thorne and Luke Randis to support passers-by who stopped off to have a try.
The event was also supported by Brighton Table Tennis Club bringing across their high performance T21 squad.
Along with the highly popular Ping Pong Parlour in the Swan Walk Shopping Centre and well used outdoor table in Horsham Park installed some 10 years ago, table tennis is really making a positive contribution to the activity levels in and around the town.
The Council’s Sports Development team works extensively with Table Tennis England and other partners to create initiatives to encourage people to start playing the very accessible sport.
