Summer 2012 saw 46 table tennis tables appear throughout Bristol as part of the national Ping! project.
Although Ping! Bristol has now finished, thanks to the Ping! legacy 14 new permanent concrete tables have been installed across our parks and 23 tables donated to the local community.
Here is a full list of all the table locations and an interactive map of where to find them:
