Eleven-year-old Adam Kocsis loves playing table tennis so much at his club, Knighton Park, that he has persuaded his dad, Laszlo, to join him there for an epic 12-hour table tennis marathon this Saturday (March-11).

It’s all in aid of the Rainbows Hospice for Children in Loughborough, a local charity which has had a long standing relationship with the club. 

Adam’s mum Hilary explained “We wanted to do something to support this amazing local charity. Adam always said that he’d love to play table tennis all day, so he thought he’d give it a go and try and raise some money whilst having some fun”. 

To prepare for his marathon session, apart from playing lots of table tennis, Adam has been busy selecting 12 hours of music to keep their spirits up during the day, Laszlo has contacted all his friends and colleagues and asked them to sponsor them and Hilary is planning a cake sale for spectators to raise more money. 

‘Whenever I play table tennis with Adam, he always wants just one more game.  We’ll see if he still wants one more game after playing for 12 hours!’

Laszlo (Adam’s dad)

Adam and Loszlo will be playing from 7am – 7pm at the club.  Visitors are welcome to either come along and support them or play table tennis with them.
