Danny comes to play!

On Wednesday 10th May, the Shakespeare Martineau’s Litigation league’s Team Birmingham invited Double Commonweath Games medalist table tennis supremo Danny Reed to come to their penultimate playing session and share some of his knowledge and skills!

After showing off his medals and signing the wall in the office (there’s a picture of him – so it only seemed fair) he managed to find some time to help the team out with some hints and tips.

Competition remains fierce as the teams continue to battle it out to be the one of two winners of the Birmingham heat and go through to the semi-finals at the conference in June.

As well as providing hints and tips, Danny was happy to take any questions ranging from how he is funded, the Olympics, his current studies and getting the better of siblings.

All in all a great and informative evening.

Danny will be visiting the Leicester offices this week to put the team through their paces!

Loop News

Bring social Ping Pong to your Community

Following the success of our Loop initiatives which make it easy for leaders to introduce social table tennis to their workplaces, sports venues and university campuses; the Loop team are delighted to announce the launch of Loop in the Community

Whether you’re targeting groups with disabilities, women and girls, ethnic minorities or simply want to get everyone involved, Loop in the Community is designed to help you bring the members of your community closer together and inspire them to lead more active and healthy lifestyles.

That’s why we’ve teamed up with Sport England and equipment suppliers to bring you subsidised ‘Join In’ table tennis packages which include everything you need to kick-start social ping pong in your venue; with table, bats, balls, organiser booklet, lots of printed resources and advice to get the most out of your sessions. Loop in the Community is suitable for venues open to a wide range of people such as; village halls, religious centres, community centres, colleges, youth clubs and leisure centres.

Table tennis (or ping pong, it’s the same game!) is uniquely inclusive; everyone, irrespective of ability, age or gender, can play and enjoy the game with no special kit or footwear required.

We all know we need to be more active but it’s not that easy.  With our lives busier and more complex than ever before, there’s little time to spare. In fact, a quarter of us do less than 30 minutes of exercise a week, with under-represented groups more likely to be inactive

At Loop, we believe a work-play balance is essential for our happiness, health and well-being which is why we’re on a mission to inspire leaders to bring table tennis to the places people already spend time.

The new packages will go live on Tuesday 2nd May 2017, with lots of options to meet every community’s needs.
