Funded Table Tennis Equipment

Ping! and the ETTA have been working with Sport England to create a simple way for local not-for-profit organisations to access funding and deliver recreational table tennis opportunities as easily as possible. 

We have linked the Sport England Small Grants award scheme to packages that provide local organisations with everything they need to make recreational table tennis happen locally. 

There are two packages available: one for Outdoor Ping! and one for Indoor Ping! – the packages are described in the table below.  We have also worked with the Small Grants team to produce easy-to-complete applications forms, with much of the information already filled in. Please note that this does not mean that Sport England funding is guaranteed; each application will be considered on its merits.

If you are interested in applying for one of these packages, all you need to do is register your interest before Monday 23rd April at with Shaun Marples at [] – you only need to enter some short contact detail information, and to let us know if you are interested in a package for indoor or outdoor table tennis.
