Play out­door ping pong at lunch

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Opinion -

COM­MU­NITY mem­bers can now en­joy a game of ping pong on their lunch break with the in­stal­la­tion of five Public Out­door Ping Pong (POPP) ta­bles.

The Town iden­ti­fied POPP as a cre­ative way to pro­mote phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity, art­work and space ac­ti­va­tion in the one ini­tia­tive and it was added to the Town’s Public Art Master Plan 2013-2015.

Chief ex­ec­u­tive An­thony Vuleta said the ta­bles were a great ad­di­tion to the Town’s lifestyle.

“These public ping­pong ta­bles are a bit of colour and fun in our parks and are a great way for peo­ple of all ages to get out­side and stay ac­tive,” he said.

Pad­dles and boards will ini­tially be pro­vided at each ta­ble but users are en­cour­aged to bring their own.

POPP ta­bles are lo­cated at the fol­low­ing parks:

Houghton Park, St James;

Ray­ment Park, Lath­lain;

John Bis­sett Re­serve, East Vic­to­ria Park;

Hawthorn Park, Vic­to­ria Park; and

John MacMil­lan Park, East Vic­to­ria Park.
