Ping England 2012

Ping 2012 has been phenomenal success this year with over 700 ping pong tables across 8 cities played on by thousands of people, young and old of varying abilities. Each city held their own special events and promotions to introduce the game to their surrounding community. I know that the Ping Team in Bristol really had a ball despite the miserable weather we have had this summer.

We are lucky enough in Bristol to be one of those eight participating cities of this wonderful initiative. Although London have been lucky to have the ever enthusiastic Boris Johnson promoting the scheme in the London boroughs there are groups of fantastic people all over the country working tirelessly promoting Table Tennis in Birmingham, Brighton & Hove, Bristol, Hampshire, Hull, Leicester, Liverpool and Sheffield.

Ping England have created a great website that allows you to select your city and postcode to find out what tables their are in your local area. If you visit the Ping England - Find a Table page on their website, you might find out there is a table you can have a game on not too far away!

We work very closely with Cornilleau, a French table tennis manufacturer who have supplied over 300 tables to Ping England. They make fantastic quality product in both rollaway and static versions. Their Proline 510 Table Tennis Table featured heavily across Ping London as well as a number of Cornilleau 500M Rollaway Tables with are top of the range foldaway models, ideal for schools and leisure players who want the best.

We have recently found out that Bristol will be getting 15 new tables across the city, some static and some that are rollaway models. If you are looking to get a great game from any of your local tables, keep your eye out for the Cornilleau models over the concrete ones. They will play far better which in turn, over time, will make you a better player.
