A scheme to encourage people to take up table tennis is pinging it’s way to Milton Keynes next week.

Table Tennis England’s Ping! scheme will launch on Wednesday and will provides publicly-accessible tables in some surprising locations around the town.

As part of the launch, a day before National Table Tennis day on Thursday, seven table tennis tables will be set up in Middleton Hall in thecentre:mk, with primary and secondary schools competitions being held.

And on Thursday, commuters at Milton Keynes Central will have the opportunity to take on England’s most successful Commonwealth Games athlete Andrew Baggaley.

“I am genuinely very excited for Milton Keynes with both the launch of Ping! kicking off in Middleton Hall on Wednesday and National Table Tennis Day on Thursday,” Andrew said. “The Ping! project has been massively successful all over the country and I am positive that the Milton Keynes public will get into the spirit of this great opportunity to get fit and active during the summer in Milton Keynes.

“I will personally be helping to launch National Table Tennis Day on Thursday at Station Square (Milton Keynes Central Railway Station) at 1pm and would love to see all budding table tennis enthusiasts young and old out in force to celebrate this special new day!”
