Lee Monk of Table Tennis England has issued the following
So you are all aware, I recently had a meeting with the shopping centre management team at the Kennett Centre, Newbury and we will shortly be announcing the opening of a brand new ping pong parlour. The parlour will make use of an empty shopping unit with 3 tables, bats and balls available to play on for the public for free! Clubs across the county have successfully used them to run fun competitions, recruit new members and engage with the public, most locally in Maidenhead. The Shopping Centre are keen to link up with local clubs and have also offered free event space in the mall if there is interest.
They are aiming for a 1st May opening Anyone who can help with this please let one of our committee members know
