Following the latest Government announcement giving details of the roadmap out of lockdown; here is an outline of how these measures will effect outdoor public table tennis tables and Ping Pong Parlours and other indoor settings.

Please note these dates, are the earliest these steps will come into effect, and will be assessed each time by the Government against the ‘four tests’.



Play on outdoor tables and organised outdoor sport is now permitted for bubbles of 6 adults (can be from multiple households) or two households (which may be more than 6 people), or groups of 15 children.  Click here for a guide on playing outdoors safely.




Currently: Ping Pong Parlours and other indoor venues with tables are closed.

No earlier than 12th April:

Table tennis in Ping Pong Parlours* and other indoor venues can re-start for adults if with someone from your own household or support bubble. U18s and disabled people can play indoors in bubbles of 15.

No earlier than 17th May:

Table tennis in Ping Pong Parlours* and other indoor venues to re-start for adults in bubbles of up to 6 people (from multiple households), or from two households (which can be over 6 people).

*Sadly not all Ping Pong Parlours will re-open from this date, but we are working with our shopping centre partners to get as many operating as soon as possible.


No earlier than 21st June:

All legal limits on social contact will be removed, guidance will be published on how to best reduce the risk of transmission and protect ourselves and loved ones.
