Every Monday evening we have a drop-in table tennis event where anyone can come and learn to play table tennis. During the rest of the week we have various people playing their own organized games.
As the theatre is used quite often in the wider community, people are aware that a table tennis table and equipment is available so it has made an appearance at parties hosted in the theatre, and recreational time during event set up and events.
We have seen people from all ages play (from ages ~5 to ~85) and now have regulars who play each week. Playing table tennis has also been a great way to connect with neighbors as well as an ice-breaker when meeting new people at events. During the winter months when the weather makes it difficult to enjoy the outdoors it will be a great way to get exercise.
