Herne Bay Table Tennis Club has undergone a huge refurbishment during the lockdown period.
Walls have been repainted, there is a new kitchen and toilets installed, a new chipboard floor and most importantly Table Tennis England competition matting laid.
President Michael Micklethwaite, who helped instigate the creation of the club nearly 30 years ago, cut the ribbon to enter our plush refurbished club.
To celebrate the government allowing Table Tennis to resume on July 26, the club, located on Swalecliffe Avenue, are offering free table tennis induction and coaching for juniors.
Those aged six to 18 can take advantage of the offer. Coaching takes place on Sunday, August 23, between the hours of 11am and 6pm. Parents with under-16s must stay with their children and those attending can come and go as they please.
Bats and balls will be provided, along with hand sanitiser on entertaining. Sports trainers only on the courts.
The club also offer general coaching and practice sessions during the week.
There are hopes of playing Winter League matches from September and anyone wishing to be part of a team or just want to improve their game can find out more on the website.
