Loop at Work

Get your workplace active with ping pong!

From tables and trophies to tips and tournaments, Loop at Work has everything an organisation needs to bring table tennis to life in the workplace.

Table Tennis England has developed Loop at Work, a package designed to directly meet the health and wellbeing needs of workplaces.  It provides organisations everything they need to plan and implement ping pong within the work environment.

Research has shown that employees who enjoy being part of a table tennis ‘culture’ are more likely to report significantly higher job satisfaction, greater competence in the workplace and feel more connected with their colleagues.

We do not want price to be a barrier to organisations enjoying table tennis and so we’ve teamed up with Sport England and equipment suppliers to offer our Loop at Work customers a heavily discounted rate of up to 50% off the retail price. This is why the prices that you see on our website are well below the Recommended Retail Price (RRP).

The Loop at Work package includes the following:

  • Table (indoor, outdoor rollaway, outdoor static)
  • Activation Pack including:
  • 10 x bats
    24 x balls
    Rules poster
    Advertising posters
    Games manual
  • Full support from Table Tennis England
  • Free delivery

Please note that indoor and outdoor tables are 2.7m long, 1.5m wide and 76cm high. We suggest you try and double these dimensions to give you a really spacious playing area (ideally, 8 x 4 metres) with a firm floor.

For more information or to discuss creating a bespoke package for multiple sites/high number of employees, please call 01908 208 887 or email us

We are able to customise all kit and equipment, branded in your company’s logos and colours.

Please contact us for a quotation.

 

Confirm you meet the eligibility criteria, go to our shop and select the package you require, proceed to checkout and complete the form. You can pay for your order by PayPal or card payment at the time of ordering, or request to pay by invoice. Table Tennis England reserve the right to decline any order if your organisation or project doesn’t meet the eligibility criteria of the Loop at Work project. If you pay via PayPal or card at the time of ordering, you will be issued a refund less an administration fee.

We’ve noticed that the workplaces who get the most employees playing ping pong are those that plan ahead.

Questions to consider:

  • Do you have a clearly visible, safe area to position a table either inside or outside your workplace that has good accessibility and a flat surface area (ideally a minimum of 8 x 4m)?
  • Do you have an enthusiastic staff member to encourage participation, organise play, create a buzz around the table and become the Ping Pong Pioneer?
  • What time of play would suit your work place? For example casual play, tournaments, before/during/after work, or a Friday afternoon ping pong session.
