Table Tennis Scotland is on a mission to get people of all ages and abilities to take up the sport and that includes hospitality workers and customers.
Workplace table tennis is an initiative from PR Agency Hollicom and Table Tennis Scotland they believe that table tennis which can be played in workplace breakout areas, bars and community centres, aids health and mental wellbeing.
But there is also an added benefit for hospitality. PR guru, and table tennis fan, Heather Suttie, “Customers and staff playing makes for great social content as well as ensuring the feel-good vibes of dopamine and endorphins are flowing. We believe that introducing table tennis to your business, whether it’s for your staff or customers, will have a positive impact on your bottom line and in terms of health and wellbeing the benefits are priceless and long-lasting.”
To encourage hospitality operators to get involved Table Tennis Scotland have tables, bats and balls to buy or rent. To purchase it the package cost £1250 and to rent, £250 per month ( minimum 3 months ) and that includes the table, bats, balls and net.
Says Heather, “All proceeds are invested back into Table Tennis Scotland clubs across the country, providing safe spaces for low-income communities, senior citizen, Dementia and Parkinson’s groups countrywide and supporting sporting stars of the future like quadriplegic Olympian Martin Perry who plays at Drumchapel.”
