National #TableTennisDay - Get Ready for 14th July
Posted: Fri, 13 May 2016 11:50
The countdown is on to the big day! It's National #TableTennisDay on Thursday July 14.
#TableTennisDay is a chance for every member of the table tennis family to celebrate and share all that is best about our sport. It's about working in partnership across the community to enthuse and inspire people to pick up a bat, get active and pick up a sporting habit for life.
Last year's celebration saw more than 200 events around the country, plus BBC and Sky Sports coverage – and it reached more than four million people on social media.
Now the challenge is to beat that this year.
Help spread the word
Please can you help us make the day a success by contacting organisations in your network who own a table tennis table and encouraging them to join in the festivities.
If you know of anyone who might be interested in introducing table tennis to their workplace then please make them aware that we've teamed up with Sport England and equipment suppliers to offer superb 'Beat the Boss' Loop packages which include everything that's needed to get around the table. Order now to have your package delivered in time for #TableTennisDay.
What else can you do to get involved?
If you have a table in your office, or even an Instant Ping Pong set, then why not host an office tournament or challenge a local business to a game?
Perhaps you could liaise with schools and clubs and encourage them to take part in our 'Design a Ping-Pong Character' competition for a chance to win a custom table?
Whatever activities you or your network are thinking about putting on, the first step is to download our Organiser's Toolkit, which provides help, advice and suggestions for how to get the most out of the day.
