Sunderland's Ping Pong Parlour reopens after lockdown - here are the restrictions in place

Families hoping to let off some steam during the holidays are being invited to visit Sunderland’s Ping Pong Parlour as it reopens after lockdown.

Monday, 17th August 2020, 5:26 pm
The Ping Pong Parlour in the Bridges is reopening for the first time since lockdown began.

The Ping Pong Parlour at the Bridges is back in business from today – Monday, August 17 – and it’s got a new home in the former USC unit next to Debenhams.

A number of new safety restrictions have been brought in to keep customers safe, enabled by the move to a larger unit.

Duncan Allen, building and services director at the Bridges, is looking forward to welcoming people back.

He said: “We’re delighted to be reopening our popular Ping Pong Parlour this week, so our shoppers can let off a bit of steam and have some fun during their visit to the centre.

“The parlour is now in a much bigger unit than it was beforehand so it’s a great space for maintaining social distancing and we’ve got cleaning stations on hand to put visitor’s minds at ease.”

Slots to play with a single opponent from another household, or doubles if their partner is part of their bubble, are limited to one hour and must be booked in advance.

Players will be encouraged to use hand sanitiser before and after entering, keep to their side of the table, wipe down the table after use and bring their own bats and balls for the game.

Opening hours will be from 10am until 4pm Monday to Saturday, and 11am until 4pm on Sunday.
