PING! London

I attach updated details on an exciting initiative due to happen in London during July and August this year. ETTA is looking to recruit 75 lead volunteers and approximately 225 helpers to run table tennis activities as part of Ping! London. The flyer gives more information on the Programme and I would be happy to answer any queries or questions you may have.

Invitations are being sent to London based Clubs, Leagues and County Associations but it was also thought that the information should be sent to the Regions around London since there may be some of you who work in London or have links with London and may be able get involved with this project. However, it is not necessary to be associated with London in that way, if you want to get involved or find out more then just call or email, myself, Brian Spicer or Diccon Gray.

I’m now able to provide more information on the table locations (see attached PDF). Timings when activities are to take place are still being complied. Training will be provided for volunteers prior to the launch of the event which is scheduled for the 22nd July 2010. Training dates have been organised on:-

• Sunday 11th July @ Paddington Recreation Ground, Maida Vale, W9 14.00-16.30hrs
• Monday 12th July @ Dulwich Park, College Road, SE21 18.00-20.30hrs
• Monday 19th July @ Paddington Recreation Ground Maida Vale, W9 18.00-20.30hrs

To give you a flavour tables are planned to be located at Heathrow, The Science Museum, selected railway stations as well as outdoor sites around London.

Please circulate this information through all your TT networks as you can see from the flyer we are looking for a big volunteer workforce to deliver this innovative project.
