Ping Pong Parlours

We take over empty shop units and fill them with table tennis tables for the public to play on for FREE!


Ping Pong Parlours are ‘pop-up’ spaces (usually empty shop units), filled with table tennis tables to provide a fun, accessible venue for passers-by to play ping pong for free as well as creating a buzz in shopping centres and the High Street.

They form part of our vision to inspire people to get active and lead happier, healthier lifestyles by introducing table tennis into the places they already spend time in their everyday lives.

In 2021 the Ping Pong Parlour project won the Activation Award in the prestigious ukactive national awards. The project was also shortlisted for a Sports Industry Award in 2019.

Find a Ping Pong Parlour

Just pop your postcode into the ‘Places to Play’ map using the link below and use the Ping Pong Parlour filter, or simply search for Ping Pong Parlour!

There’s no need to book.

Once you’ve found your nearest Ping Pong Parlour just come along to play for free. Bats and balls should be available to borrow in the Parlour.

In the unlikely event the Parlour isn’t open or there are no bats and balls, then please ask at the shopping centre information desk.

Generally Ping Pong Parlours follow the normal opening hours of the shopping centre, but we advise you check ahead with the centre to avoid disappointment.

Ping Pong Parlours are not staffed, we rely on the people who play in them to respect the equipment and not remove bats and balls, so that everybody can continue to enjoy using the facilities.


If you would like to volunteer at your local Ping Pong Parlour: whether that might be with some coaching; leading a Bat & Chat session; running a competition; or in any other way;  we’d love to hear from you! Get in touch

If you are a commercial landlord or property manager of retail space, we can help transform your empty spaces into social pop-up ping pong areas.  You’ll enjoy reduced business rates, showcase the space and create an asset for the whole community to enjoy.
