The power of ping pong: watch here to see it in action

It’s all about the power of ping pong. No, really! We went behind the scenes to chat to the stars of our ping pong film to find out just what’s so special about table tennis.

We were joined by young table tennis champions from Greenhouse Sports, a London-based charity that uses sport to support young people living in the inner-city to improve their health and fitness, as well as their engagement with their education and community.

The teens took on five of Table Tennis England’s finest over-80 champions, including Geof Bax, 83, current Veterans Doubles World Champion and World Champion until a shock defeat in New Zealand last year.

Since 1994 The National Lottery has invested over £37 million into table tennis projects and facilities for elite players, grass roots clubs and community groups. Thank you for playing.
