Ping! Blackpool

What is Ping!?

Ping! is the free street table tennis project that takes place in towns and cities all over England. Ping! began in London in 2010 and this year there will be over 25 cities involved. Check out www.pingengland.co.uk/blackpool to find the nearest tables in Blackpool and along the Fylde Coast.

Ping! began life as a summer festival and has evolved into an all year-round project that is kick-started again each June with the festival that runs throughout the summer. During the festival there are bats and balls available to borrow for free at every table. Simply grab one to play. Look out for a programme of events, activities and promotions throughout the festival too.

Ping! takes ping pong out of the traditional places to play and out into the public realm. It is designed to make it ping pong really visible, accessible and sociable.

Play On Opportunities

Have you got the Table Tennis bug?

In Blackpool there are a wide variety of “Play On” opportunities, regular open sessions held by groups during the day or evening, such as the recently launched Bat & Chat Sessions held at Christ Church hall, Thornton on a Thursday evening. To view all the sessions, see the Play On places to play on the Ping! Blackpool website.
