Table tennis has arrived at the Ballina Indoor Sports Centre (BISC) for the summer school holidays.

The community is invited to join a table tennis session on Tuesday mornings from 8.30am to 12noon and Thursday afternoons from 12noon to 6pm throughout the school holidays.

Casual play at the BISC is $6 per person.

‘We are always looking for ways to engage the community in sport and attract them to the centre,’ Roberta O’Brien, Ballina Council’s coordinator of community facilities said.

‘Table tennis is a game the whole family can play and most people are familiar with.

‘The four new table tennis tables will now give families another fun activity to enjoy for casual play at the BISC.

‘We are introducing table tennis initially over two days and will adjust sessions depending on feedback and demand for the game. We are hoping to see people of all ages come in for a hit.

‘Children of primary school age must be accompanied by an adult as a condition of entry,’ she said.

In school holidays, the BISC is open 8.30am to 6pm, Monday to Friday, and 10am to 2pm, Saturday and Sunday.
