Loop at Work

From tables and trophies to tips and tournaments, Loop at Work has everything an organisation needs to bring table tennis to life in the workplace.

Table Tennis England have developed Loop at Work, a package designed to directly meet the health and wellbeing needs of work places.  It provides organisations everything they need to plan and implement ping pong within the work environment.  The package includes a table, support from Table Tennis England and an activation pack (containing bats, balls, posters, trophies and a rules and ideas booklet).

 

 

 

Research has shown that employees who enjoy being part of a table tennis ‘culture’ are more likely to report significantly higher job satisfaction, greater competence in the workplace and feel more connected with their colleagues.

  • 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

Why bring table tennis into your workplace?

Table tennis in the workplace can be a fantastic productivity tool and a great way for staff to relax, de-stress and interact. We believe businesses need to create the right conditions for success, with table tennis being the ideal activity for those looking to create a more relaxed, collaborative and fun workplace culture. A table tennis table creates a simple invitation to play, and as little as 10 minutes of table tennis at a time provides physical and mental health benefits.

Which option within Loop at Work would suit my organisation?

There are five options within Loop at Work that a business can choose from.

Our most popular choice is option one which includes an indoor folding table.  Easy to move, it can be set up in a meeting room or easily fit into the corner of an office, cafeteria or factory floor.

For those organisations who have limited space, we can offer option 4 containing a table topper, allowing a meeting table to be easily converted into a table tennis table, or option 5 containing a ¾ sized table.

If a business would like their employees to play outdoors then look no further than options 2 and 3, you will just need to decide whether you wish the table to be movable or not.

Please note that indoor and outdoor tables are 2.7m long, 1.5m wide and 76cm high.  We suggest you at least double these dimensions to give you a playing area (ideally, you’d have 8 x 4 metres) with a firm floor.

How can I make Loop at Work successful in my workplace?

At Table Tennis England we have noticed that the workplaces who get the most employees playing ping pong are those that plan ahead.  That is why we have provided businesses with an activation pack as part of Loop at Work to help get you started.

 Questions to consider:

  1. Do you have a clearly visible, safe area to position a table either inside or outside your workplace that has good accessibility and a flat surface area (ideally a minimum of 8 x 4m)?
  2. Do you have an enthusiastic staff member to encourage participation, organise play, create a buzz around the table and become the ping pong ‘pioneer’?
  3. What time of play would suit your work place? For example casual play, tournaments, before/during/after work, or a Friday afternoon ping pong session.
  4. How are you going to monitor usage of the table for example sign in sheets, observations, feedback?
