A Ping Pong Parlour has opened up in Nailsea to enable shoppers to enjoy a free game of table tennis.

The shop is open from 10am-4pm every day and people can pop in to play on one of three table tennis tables.

There is no need to book and bats are available from the store.

Crown Glass Shopping Centre has teamed up with the Ping! and Loop team at Table Tennis England to bring the project to life.

Centre manager Martin Nelmes said: “We’re thrilled we now have a Ping Pong Parlour in our centre.

“We hope our shoppers will enjoy using it.”

Ping Pong Parlours have already opened in a number of shopping centres nationwide and form part of Table Tennis England’s vision to inspire people to become more active and lead healthier lifestyles.

Table Tennis England also runs ping pong festivals in 24 towns and cities and creates opportunities for workplaces and clubs to introduce the 
sport.
