Ping Pong – Autumn Sport

tab1 So the Autumn has hit us, with wind, rain and cold weather. Too windy for tennis, but not for table tennis!
“Table tennis, also known as ping-pong, is a sport in which two or four players hit a lightweight, hollow ball back and forth using table tennis rackets.” - Wikipedia
St. Paul's run free table tennis for adults of all levels, on Monday evenings between 7.30 & 9.30pm. We have around 10 players (men and women).  Most players had not played for some time, but have surprised themselves at how quickly their touch returned.  The evenings are great fun, the standard is good and fairly even across the membership resulting in many close games.  We play the old scoring method to 21 and mainly doubles to avoid long sit outs.  Singles are played as and when numbers dictate.
We are looking for new players so whether you currently play or used to why not come and have a try out.  There is no need to feel embarrassed if you are worried about whether you are good enough. You are welcome to come along and meet us and judge for yourself before playing.  tab2
