Ping! is a national table tennis initiative which sees table tennis tables installed in busy places for 6-8 weeks during the summer. The aim is to get as many people as possible playing the game, free of charge, in social, competitive and imaginative ways.
The University has retained a table permanently as part of the Ping! legacy and everyone is invited to have a go. Bats and balls are supplied: to join in the fun, just borrow a bat from the side of the table, and play.
Drake's Place Gardens is open from 07:00 until dusk every day.
About Ping! Plymouth
Ping! Plymouth takes place from 2 July - 27 August 2017 and bats and balls are bouncing into sites across the city, from parks and outdoor spaces to pubs and bars. It's completely free to take part - all you have to do is find a willing opponent and get playing! The event aims to build a community who want to continue playing table tennis long after the festival is over.
Ping! Plymouth is delivered by Table Tennis England in partnership with Plymouth City Council's Sports Development Unit and is funded by Sport England.
