The ping pong tables will be available for locals to use at places like shopping centers, parks and local landmarks.

"The event will have a grand launch on July 22 in Queen Victoria Square with the aid of the Travelling Ping-Pong Parlour, described as a "table tennis social club on wheels". The size of a large ice cream van, it has fold-down sides and is set up so people can play against themselves.

The Parlour will park at 28 Paragon Street from noon until 6pm between Wednesdays and Saturdays to host everything from "ping-pong bingo" to film screenings and, one night, a dating game where singles may find their match."
