Pop up Table Tennis

Table tennis is a sport that we've probably all had a go at. 

I know when I first picked up a bat the challenge to get that ball back on the other side of the table no matter what was an irresistible draw.

There are not so many places to 'give it a go' these days... It seemed with works canteens and social clubs of yesteryear that there were more places to 'chance by' table tennis.

As chairman of the Watford Table Tennis League... my remit is to ensure the future of Table Tennis locally and consequently I have acquired some mini table tennis tables that require minimal space and that can be easily transported.

The idea is to open up the opportunity to experience Table Tennis is a fun way... through increased engagement, new connections... more people experiencing the game and perhaps even discover some new venues which could host more formal Table tennis going forward... In an ideal world we might find a new home for some of the teams that play in the Watford League itself.

If you are interested in new ideas around Table Tennis as a means of bringing people together for a bit of fun, along with other initiatives or just a fun thing to do all on its own then please let me know. You can contact me on twitter @chrisogle or through email sme7.chrisogle@gmail.com
