Ping! Bournemouth

Ping! Bournemouth Bounces in this Summer!

Bournemouth will be going batty this summer when Ping! – the free street table tennis festival – bounces into town. The ping pong extravaganza will see over 20 ping pong tables springing up at various locations across the town including Central Gardens, Bournemouth Beach and Muscliff Park. The tables will pop up from Friday 10 June, offering everyone the chance to play Table Tennis for free throughout the summer – all you need to do is grab a bat and ball from the side of the table and get playing!

Ping! Bournemouth is produced by Active Dorset in partnership with us and Table Tennis England. The festival aims to create community spirit across the town, by providing many social playing opportunities.

Ping! Bournemouth launches with a ping pong bonanza at the Bandstand in Bournemouth Gardens on Friday 10 June from 12pm. Further details of the launch will be announced shortly. A series of Ping! events will also be taking place throughout the festival which will run June-August 2016.
