To close our Spring into Health season, Broadgate presents Ping in the City, a day of coaching, knockout tournaments and free-play on all five of our new ping pong tables in Exchange Square.
Join our professional table tennis coaches during your lunch break from 11am-3pm or after work from 4-7.30pm to get some hints and tips on your game and pick up some new skills.
Feeling competitive? Challenge our coaches to a game of Beat the Pro or bring your friends and colleagues for a qualified refereed match. Ping pong fans and table tennis newbies are also welcome to come along and for free-play sessions. We will have a few tables reserved for games of doubles and singles and our coaches can help you get started.
There’s no need to book – just turn up.
Thursday 29 May 11am-3pm and 4-7.30pm. Exchange Square, Broadgate EC2A 2BQ.
Table tennis is a fast and strategic game requiring super quick reactions. It’s also a great way to keep fit. We completed a survey in March to find out which fitness activities you’d like to try this spring and table tennis came out on top!
