Peakland & District Table Tennis Club

 

 

                                                                                            

We play in the school gym every Wednesday at 7:30 . We have an active membership but are always open to new members.
Here is a picture of a typical club nights play.

Table tennis has come a long way from it's believed origin in England during the 12th century as a spin-off of "Royal Tennis" and was also popular as a parlor game in Victorian homes. Equipment was made from various homemade articles, such as cardboard for rackets, books as nets and usually a ball of string.

Today world class players can put up to 9000rpm of spin on a table tennis ball and todays high technology bats are  covered with either pimpled, junk or sandwich rubber!
