Ping pong van comes to town

FREE table tennis will be on offer on one Harrogate street on Tuesday.

The Travelling Ping Pong Parlour is a special van kitted out with tables, seating for spectators a hatch which issues bats, balls and refreshments.

Billed as a ping pong social club, its visit to Prospect Crescent will run from 11am-6pm, as part of a national tour to promote the sport.

Besides the free table tennis, there will also be coaches on hand and competitions to win prizes.

The Ping Pong Parlour is part funded by sports sponsors Puma and the National Lottery.
