For our #ReturntotheTable campaign we asked clubs and organisations to host a celebration event during August 30 and September 13 to encourage people to return to table tennis, and to attract new players. We offered great prizes just for running an event, including a £500 grant. Here’s the winners!
Prizes for hosting a Return to the Table event during the celebration fortnight:
1st prize: £500 – Highbury Table Tennis Club
2nd prize: Visit from an England player – Darlington Dolphins
We also asked organisations running a celebration event to tag us on social media with photos and videos from their event, or send them to us for a chance to win even more prizes. See below the three organisations that have been successful!
