Visitors to Bootle Strand Shopping Centre will soon be able to enjoy free ping pong in between their shopping sprees.
A pop up Ping Pong Parlour, set up by Active Sefton in conjunction with Table Tennis England and Bootle Strand, will officially open on Wednesday February 13 for all to enjoy.
The parlour can be found on the shopping centre’s Palatine level and will be open during normal shopping hours and Active Sefton’ experts will also be running free coaching sessions throughout the year.
Cllr Ian Moncur, Sefton Council’s Cabinet Member for Health and Wellbeing, said: “This is a fantastic and exciting addition to The Strand and we encourage everyone to drop in to play on one of the two table tennis tables we have.
“Simply grab a bat and play – absolutely free of charge!
“Through our incredible Active Sefton offer we have teamed up with Table Tennis England, the sport’s national governing body, as well as Bootle Strand Shopping Centre to offer this innovative and fun free service.
“The Ping Pong Parlour reiterates our continuing commitment to inspire our residents and communities to be active, healthy and happy.”
Rowland Parry, Bootle Strand Shopping Centre’s manager, added: “We are delighted to welcome The Ping Pong Parlour to The Strand and hope our shoppers will use the facility to engage in some table tennis fun.”
