PING! Brighton & Hove
Step up to the Table as Ping is here to stay!
Out of the 36 table tennis tables that appeared across the city during the summer, as part of Ping! Brighton & Hove, 32 of the tables have been left in their current locations for all to enjoy.
The feedback received about this project was very positive, people just wanted to get involved, play ping pong and have fun. The tables will remain as a free activity into the future, though players will now have to supply their own bats and balls at most of the out door venues.
Ping! is one of the most successful sports participation projects, attracting over 150,000 players to date - once you start playing you won’t want to stop.
