…and you’ve guessed right – you can play table tennis in the parks as long as you adhere to the latest guidance from the Government and Table Tennis England!
As you already know, you’re now allowed to stay physically active outdoors as often as you wish. This includes use of outdoors sports courts and facilities with members of your household, or one other person while staying 2 metres apart.
The following eight park venues across the city have PING! table tennis tables where you can go and play your favourite sport for free: Armley, Meanwood, Middleton, Aberford, East End, Springhead, Scatcherd, Chapel Allerton.
You will need to keep 2 metres distance at all times if you’re playing with someone outside your household and not change ends. You will also need to bring your own bat and ball and not share them.
From Monday, 1st of June, you will be allowed to gather in groups of up to six people in public or private outdoor spaces, as long as social distancing is practised. However, you must not play doubles table tennis unless with others from your household.
