Thousands of people flocked to the tables as the sixth annual #TableTennisDay got people playing up and down the country.

With clubs, schools, shopping centres, workplaces and community groups joining the party, it was a busy day in every corner of England.

The Table Tennis England main event took over part of Bristol City Centre, where Commonwealth Games medallist Maria Tasptsinos and England Junior international Louis Price took on shoppers and the robot challenge proved a popular attraction to young and old.

And as if the day was not exciting enough, our TT Kidz initiative aimed at providing a fun introduction to the sport for 7-to-11-year-olds was launched at Chester Park Junior School in Bristol, with Maria and Louis again on hand to inspire 100 youngsters taking part.

There was even a message from the England women’s team at the Commonwealth Championships in India, where they will be going for a medal today!

Here is just a flavour of some of the events which took place thanks to all those who tweeted or sent us photos. You can send photos to marketing@tabletennisengland.co.uk or post on social media using the hashtag #TableTennisDay
