Ping Pong Parlour invites autistic adults in Maidenhead to try table tennis free of charge

Autistic adults living in Windsor & Maidenhead are being invited to take part in free ping pong sessions at the Nicholson Centre in Maidenhead town centre every Wednesday evening during the summer.

The special autism-friendly sessions will run between 6pm and 7pm from Wednesday this week, July 19, until Wednesday, August 30.

The Pop-up Ping Pong Parlour is opposite the Tesco store inside the Nicholson Centre and will be open for members of the public to try table tennis the rest of the week, during the centre’s normal opening hours.

The parlour is being run by Table Tennis England and the sports development team from the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead, in conjunction with the Nicholson Centre. It is part of a national campaign to encourage people to take up the sport and get some exercise as part of a healthier lifestyle. 

Jane Wright, manager of the Nicholson Centre, said “When I was first approached about the idea I thought it was a fantastic way to offer a fun activity, free of charge. I really hope everyone makes use of the facility and has lots of fun.”
