#TableTennisDay is a hit

Just over a week ago we joined the nation to celebrate national #TableTennisDay – and what a grand time was had by all.

Across the land many businesses and community groups came together to celebrate our great game.  The day was a hit on social media too, with the #TableTennisDay hashtag trending, reaching more than 950,000 people, while many thousands more being engaged on Facebook and Instagram.

Paralympic gold medallist Will Bayley appeared on Chris Evans’ Breakfast Show on BBC Radio 2, while Classic FM mentioned the day in its round up of interesting and quirky things going on. Between them, the two shows have more than 11 million listeners each week.
