Table tennis at SWFLC

table tennis hero

Fun, challenging and fast-paced, table tennis (or ping pong) is a great sport for everybody.

It is low impact, but will still keep you fit and flexible. As you hit the lightweight ball back and forth over the low net, it improves hand-eye coordination, balance, concentration and is a great way to introduce children to racket sports.

At SWFLC you can play on our indoor tables with two or four players, and book on a pay as you go basis.  

Each court booking starts on the hour and is for 40 minutes during peak times, or 60 minutes during off peak times.
