SHIPLAKE TABLE TENNIS

Background

Since late last year, we have been successful in running table tennis session in the Memorial Hall, following setup support under the South Oxon Go Active initiative, which primarily targeted the over 55s but in practice is open to anyone.  Through this we have been very fortunate to source a quality table plus accessories from Table Tennis England, which have been supplemented by a generous donation by Shiplake College of the tables which they have recently replaced.

This has meant that we can now operate 4 tables at once, which fully occupy the current average weekly attendance of 12 locals residents with great enjoyment being had by those attending, making new and refreshing old acquaintances alike.

Current Arrangements

Sessions are held at the Memorial Hall on:

- every Wednesdays, from 11.15 am until 12.15 pm

- on certian Fridays from 11.30 am until 12.30 pm (dates are dependent on Hall availability)

Bats and balls provided.  The current charge is only £3 per session per attendee, which covers the rental of the Hall plus, in time, help to repalce equipment, as required. 

Wednesday Sessiosn have now been booked up until 8th August but is highly likely to be booked further ahead in due course; the next Friday sessions are 30th June, 7th July and 4th August - please check the website calendar for all dates.

Many thanks for your support to date and hopefully we will see some new attendees, keen to leap around the table and demonstrate how well they can spin or smash a ball.....or as most of us do, just be thankful that it has not only reached the other side but has kept on the table!!

Any questions, please e-mail me or ring me on 07828278001
