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, over the last 10 weeks we have released a series of short films telling the stories of some of the inspirational projects and people of Ping!
From Gordon, who after a brain injury, found himself rock bottom but has gained a new lease of life at the Mansfield Ping Pong Parlour; to the KX Tribe, a table tennis club which evolved organically from the Ping! tables in London’s Kings Cross and now attracts high level players from all over the world.
This is the #PowerofPing and we’ve enjoyed sharing these stories with you over the last 10 weeks.
Below is a montage of all the films …. enjoy!
