Our national #TableTennisDay event

Milton Keynes, intu shopping centre, Wednesday July 18th, 11am to 2pm

Table Tennis England’s feature event is a showcase of what #TableTennisDay is all about.

We take over an area in a city for the day in an attempt to get passers-by to give it a go.

So far we’ve held events in Nottingham, Brighton and London, with special guests including Commonwealth Games medallists and Olympians Sam Walker and Kelly Sibley.

This year we’ve chosen the home of our head quarters, Milton Keynes, for our flagship celebration.  

We will be taking over the shopping centre, intu Milton Keynes, and turning it into a festival of fun to get passers-by to try table tennis – and take on 2018 Commonwealth Games medallist Maria Tsaptsinos and Paralympic medallist Aaron McKibbin.

There will also be the chance to take part in other fun challenges – including beat the robot and choose your weapon – which sees you swap a bat for another random object, such as a wellington boot or a flip flop. 

Speaking about the event, Maria said:

The event is going to be really fun and rewarding for those involved. 

It’s always enjoyable getting the public involved in table tennis and seeing their skills on the table.

I hope that some of them will take the challenge on and I’m very much looking forward to it.

We’ll be in the shopping centre from 11am to 2pm on the day, so if you’re in the area, stop by, say hello and join in the fun.
