Table tennis

Table tennis in the park


Ping! is a national campaign that is funded by Sport England and led by Table Tennis England. Its purpose is to get people playing sport, and specifically table tennis, in city green spaces up and down the country.

Thanks to the the Ping! initiative, over the past 3 years, we have installed 16 free-to-use ping-pong tables at popular locations around Cambridge.

The tables are there for everybody to use and enjoy for free; to join the fun, simply pick up a bat and ball from the side of the table and get playing. There will be a ‘table minder’ nearby to replenish bats and balls as needed.

For further information about Ping events in the city this summer please go to
