The Council are pleased to announce that the long awaited table tennis tables are in and ready for use at the Recreation Ground.

The tables have been obtained through a scheme promoted by Table Tennis England and Suffolk County Council's 'Most active County' partnership programme which allowed the Council to purchase two tables at a very favourable rate.

The project aims to increase physical activity, promote long term behaviour cahnge, tackle social isolation and loneliness and targets the whole community to get involved.

Table Tennis is a fantastic sport which can be played by anyone, irrespective of gender, age disability or background. Although the sport is considered a low impact activity, it provides many physical and mental and social benefits to those who take part.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions we are unable to promote this free to use facility to large groups but encourage you to dig out your old paddles and balls and go and have a knock around.

Our thanks go to Cllr Miller who suggested the project many moons ago and to Cllr Gordon who brought the project to fruition.
