#TableTennisDay is a trendsetter!

A week ago today we joined the nation to celebrate national #TableTennisDay – and what a grand time was had by all.

Across the land many of our Ping! cities and Ping Pong Parlours came together to celebrate our great game.  The day was a hit on social media too, with the #TableTennisDay hashtag trending, reaching more than 950,000 people, while many thousands more being engaged on Facebook and Instagram.

Paralympic gold medallist Will Bayley appeared on Chris Evans’ Breakfast Show on BBC Radio 2, while Classic FM mentioned the day in its round up of interesting and quirky things going on. Between them, the two shows have more than 11 million listeners each week.

BBC Look East attended the flagship event in Milton Keynes and broadcast a feature which included interviews with Table Tennis England Chief Executive Sara Sutcliffe and star guests Aaron McKibbin and Maria Tasptsinos. Sara was delighted to be able to announce the opening of our Ping Pong Parlour next month in the intu shopping centre in the city.

Below you can see some of the highlights from the showcase event in Milton Keynes.
