T3 Ping Pong launches a new PINK Indoor/Outdoor 3-a-side table in support of Cancer Research UK’s ‘Pink Pong’ at Hackney Half Marathon on Sunday 8th May 2016
Be one of the first to have a go and play alongside some of the UK’s top table tennis super stars
This limited edition table has been kindly donated by T3 Ping Pong and their Kent based outdoor table manufacturer, Sign 2000 Ltd.
Liz May, Founder of Pink Pong said “We wanted a table that could really draw in the crowds – and this certainly does that. Its round shape makes it so much more inviting than a traditional table tennis table. T3 3-a-side table tennis is such a fun game to play and the great thing is, anyone can take part. It’s been really well received already just from the picture. And after launch, we’ve just heard it will be included in the opening of the Ping London’s 2016 Summer campaign at the end of June, which is excellent news!”
Pink Pong International Table Tennis stars featured on this unique table are Josh Band, Sean Doherty, Will Bayley, Amanda Mogey, Corinna Whitaker, Ryan Jenkins, Charlotte Carey, David Wetherill, Kelly Sibley and Liz May.

What is T3?
T3 Ping Pong is three or six-a-side table tennis. It follows similar rules to the traditional game, but it is played on a circular table with three or six players on each team. The distinctive circular design and specially constructed net are the foundations of a game which offers a greater range of shots increasing the scope for some spectacular rallies.
Launched in 2013, this unique British made and designed product, is being described as the biggest game changer in over 100 years of table tennis! And it’s obvious why!
T3 ping pong also caught the attention of the International sports community at ISPO in January, where it was awarded ‘FINALIST’ in the ISPO 2016/17 Brand New Awards held in Munich, Germany.
“We first met Liz of PINK PONG last year at the World Championships of Ping Pong when she approached us about making a pink T3! I could see it straight away, as could my 5 year old daughter who now wants to know why all our tables aren’t pink! The end result is even better and it features all the table tennis stars who support Pink Pong and Cancer Research UK.’
Digi Berry, Director, T3 Ping Pong
Annabel Coakley of Cancer Research UK said “At Cancer Research UK we hold and support many events each year but rarely do we come across something as unique as 3-a-side ping pong especially on a bright pink table! I think it will be a great addition to our fund rising equipment and we hope lots of people will come along and have a go.
We are absolutely delighted that T3 have decided to support Cancer Research UK and are extremely grateful for their kind donation! Although we have come a long way in the fight against cancer in the past 40 years there is still so much to do, and we can’t fund our vital lifesaving research without the generosity and dedication of our supporters and volunteers.’
The game is all about team, fun and inclusivity.
