Table Tennis England has partnered with ttRadar.com to advertise locations in England where people can play table tennis.

We have provided details on the locations of free to use public tables, including those under the Ping! initiative, plus details of all the dedicated table tennis clubs in our database.

ttRadar.com have used the information to create a map showing the facilities details, helping potential players find a place to play. Users can search for venues by their post code, area or city.

Click here to visit the ttRadar.com and find a facility near you.

We are also making the data available to other digital developers, who may wish to build their own table tennis table finder tools and potentially create the means to book and pay for tables.

If you would like to access the open data, please use the following links: Ping! table location data | club contact database.

The datasets will continue to grow and cleanse over the coming months as more clubs and free to use tables share their details.

The open data project has been made possible by OpenActive – a community-led initiative for change across the sport and physical activity sector, which promotes the use of opportunity data to help people get active. It is being coordinated by the Open Data Institute (ODI), an independent, non-profit, non-partisan organisation.

The goal is to make data on what, where and when physical activity sessions happen, openly available. This opportunity data includes details such as “how much will it cost?” through to “where and when is a facility available?”. It does not include personal data.
