Power of Ping – Gordon’s Story

Through the people of Ping!, we regularly hear how table tennis has a powerful impact on lives and communities.

This year marks the 10th anniversary of Ping! and to celebrate our decade, we’re releasing a series of short films telling the stories of some of the inspirational projects and people.

How a Ping Pong Parlour has changed lives

The Four Seasons Shopping Centre in Mansfield runs a weekly Bat & Chat session for people aged 50+. The sessions have created an opportunity for friendships to be made and for the community to come together.

Gordon has had two brain operations and is a regular at the sessions. Table tennis has brought hope back into his life, given him a purpose and a ‘reason to get up in the morning’.

This film shows how Ping has the power to bring happiness to people’s lives and improve their overall well-being.
