The Parlour, in partnership with Table Tennis England and Fareham College, aims to help people get active and live healthier lives through table tennis. The sporting initiative also serves to get people socialising and is perfect for visitors of any age.

The Parlour can be found opposite Vision Express and will be open during normal shopping hours.

Everyone is welcome to drop in to play on one of the three table tennis tables in the parlour which promises to be an exciting attraction for visitors. Simply grab a bat and join in the fun-absolutely free of charge!

Centre Manager, Mike Taylor, commented: “It is fantastic to work with Fareham College and Table Tennis England to provide customers a free Pop-up Ping Pong Parlour. We hope our customers enjoy this great social activity whilst visiting the Centre”.
