FAQs

Below you’ll find answers to the most Frequently Asked Questions about Loop and our range of products.

What is Loop?

Loop is an initiative that engages adults in social table tennis in a variety of non-traditional settings.
We’ve teamed up with Sport England and a series of equipment suppliers, to offer fantastic packages to businesses, sports clubs and university campuses which include tables, bats, balls, trophies and games ideas at vastly discounted prices.
Can we brand our tables?

Yes, we can brand tables and bats using vinyl stickers. We recommend having two logos (which together would fit an A3 size), placing them in opposite corners of the table – however you can put them where ever you please! The cost of this is £50.00, if you require another product, please get in contact and we will get a quote for you! We require an EPS format of your logo for printing.
Why are the outdoor tables so much more expensive?

Outdoor tables are generally more expensive, and unfortunately are not eligible for Sport England funding to subsidise their retail cost.
Can a business purchase a table on behalf of another business?

Yes, but the business receiving the table must complete the order form
How long does it take to process my order?

Processing of your order takes 1-3 working days, after which we will issue you a confirmation of order letter and invoice. Once the invoice has been paid, we aim for delivery within 7 working days – however this depends on your availability.
Delivery and Installation

All table package prices include delivery.

  • You will receive a text message the evening before delivery letting them know their 3 hour delivery slot
  • On the day of the delivery, DX Freight will ring you to let you know they’re on their way
  • Delivery drivers will unpack the table and install it (this includes adding 4 ‘T’ pieces and some nuts and bolts.
  • Drivers will open up the table, put on the net and post set so it’s ready to use
  • Drivers will remove all packaging and ask you to sign off to verify it has been delivered, installed and everything is ok

VAT

All prices shown include VAT
What space do you recommend around the table?

We recommend a space of 8m x 4m for the table, this can be smaller however, it may affect your playing space and experience. If you don’t think you have enough room for this, why not consider a ¾ size table?!

Am I eligible for a table?
All our Loop packages are for Workplaces, Clubhouses or Campuses looking to introduce table tennis into their setting, those who already have the provision for table tennis do not qualify.

Loop at Work:

      • Loop at Work packages are available for businesses in England and their employees only, any size business may order a package, however, ‘home offices’ do not constitute a workplace
      • Loop at Work packages are not available to businesses who intend for the table to be used by members of the public or paying customers, education providers may purchase a package, but the table must be placed in a staff only area

 

Loop in the Clubhouse:

      • Loop in the Clubhouse packages are available for member sports clubs in England that have clubhouses, pavilions or dedicated spaces for club social activity
      • Loop in the Clubhouse packages are not available to leisure centres, private leisure clubs, fitness providers, youth clubs, existing table tennis clubs or the like. These groups should see our Loop in the Community packages

 

Loop on Campus:

      • Only available to Universities in England

 

Loop in the Community

  • Loop in the Community packages are aimed at community organisations wanting to introduce or expand their table tennis provision. This includes venues such as village halls, religious groups, hospitals, colleges etc. The table must be available for participants to use for free, or at very low cost that does not make a profit. Sessions must target those who are predominantly over 16 years of age
  • Loop in the Community customers are required to complete a Monitoring and Evaluation form 8-10 weeks after the project has started

Health & Safety

We recommend that on receipt of your equipment package, a suitable person undertakes an initial assessment of any risks the activity will present, recording and minimising these where appropriate. An appointed person should make regular checks thereafter for any changes to the playing conditions e.g. a worn carpet that may create a trip hazard, or the state of equipment e.g. broken bats or faulty table legs and, addresses these accordingly.

You may wish to let your insurers know that you now have this activity available in your office too, for your Employer’s Liability Insurance. We have rarely found that this will affect the cost of your policy.
