The Saracens Enjoying The Table Tennis Table We Supplied
17th October 2012….
Table tennis is a great game for all ages and athletic abilities. Our customers range from pre-schoolers to world-class professional athletes.
We were delighted to supply a table tennis table to Saracens Rugby Club recently.
The players at Saracens enjoy the game to wind down after a gruelling days training, but always display their competitive nature at the table. They were kind enough to send us the video below.
Saracens is a club steeped in History. Dating back to the 18th Century, they’ve enjoyed huge success through the ages.
If you would like to take in a Saracens game please visit their website at www.saracens.com for their latest fixtures.
It’s fun for the whole family and the atmosphere is truly electric.
We’d like to wish Saracens a successful season and thank them for their custom!
Never Too Young to Start!
This clip was filmed at Woolwell Table Tennis Club and shows 18 month old Jamie playing multi-ball (which is a repetitive practice technique) with his father Kevin. They have been “playing” table tennis together since Jamie was just 6 months old. Kevin originally made the video to send to his partner’s family, but it has now become a huge YouTube hit, which to date has had over 1.5 million views. Table tennis certainly runs in the family. Kevin’s partner Marketa is a former champion from the Czech Republic and his older son is also showing great promise. We wish them all good luck with their training and hope the children enjoy a long and happy playing career.
Nor Too Old To Start!

Chill out time at Centroid Motion Capture
More and more companies are buying tables for their staff.
Centroid Motion Capture recently purchased a Cornilleau Sport 500. They now enjoy regular ping pong rallies during breaks…So keen to get to the tables, they often play in their work clothes.
For most of us this would look too amusing, but the guys from Centroid are wearing special Motion Capture suits as they are in the character animation business.
The company based at Pinewood Studios, are leaders in movie animation production and boasts the most cutting edge technology. They have been involved in the production of a great many blockbuster movies, such as Prometheus and James Bond. Their services also aid the production of high-tech video games and some amazing TV commercials, such as the award winning Evian ‘Roller-skating babies’.

Supporting our Troops
We recently received an email from a group of soldiers currently stationed in Afghanistan as part of the REME (Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers). We are delighted to say that we were able to meet their request for new bats and balls for their table, as theirs had seen better days. We received a very grateful email a few days later:
''Thankyou very much for your box of goodies, I was gobsmacked at your generosity! All of the lads out here I'm working with now think of you as a legend!
I have attached a couple of pictures with this email, I hope you like them.''
We hope they enjoy continuing to play table-tennis out there and wish them a safe return to the UK.

We were contacted by the producers of Channel 5's Big Brother series, asking if we would be able to loan a table for use in one of the housemate tasks and by the celebrities during their stay in the house. We were delighted to help, and in return they have agreed to assist us with our support for Children with Cancer UK. They will be getting all the celebrity contestants to sign the table, which will then be auctioned on ebay, with all proceeds going to Children with Cancer UK. We would like to thank Butterfly for their contribution to this worthy cause.
