Outdoor Ping Pong Table for London

This is one of the projects receiving funding from the City of London Sparks Neighbourhood Matching Fund. We are so honoured to be one of the award recipients. Read about it in the London Free Press.

Thank you to the City of London not only for the funding but also for assisting us with the site selection, preparation and the installation of the ping pong table. We are fortunate to be part of such a wonderful community.

“Outdoor Ping Pong Table for London” is an initiative with the intent to provide a positive outlet for the energy of youth – and opportunities for physical exercise for persons of all ages. Paddles and balls can be purchased inexpensively, making the sport accessible regardless of a person’s financial situation.

The concrete ping pong tables are regulation size with a smooth playing surface, a rugged steel net and spherical concrete legs that look like giant ping pong balls. The concrete tables are virtually indestructible and easy to maintain. They were designed to stand up to Canada’s winter climate and to the wear and tear inevitable in a public park. They are truly tables for all seasons!

More than fifty of the Ontario-built concrete outdoor ping pong tables have been installed in parks in Toronto and Markham by the Rotary Club of Toronto-Forest Hill. Help us bring one to London!

You can help make this happen!
We will be seeking table sponsors and donors to partner with us in the “Outdoor Ping Pong Table for London” campaign. A crowdfunding campaign will be set up shortly to manage this initiative. Donors will receive charitable receipts for the amount of the donation from the London Community Foundation.

The table will be located at East Lions park. The park is currently being redone and will reopen in the summer of 2019 with a great new look. Stay tuned for updates. To receive email updates contact me at mona @ mldsolutions.com with the subject “ping pong”.

Launched at Growing Chefs! Ontario at The Grove at Western Fair District ! Thank you Andrew and team for opening up space for us. This is a win-win for us to be here and supporting education about growing vegetables, preparing vegetables and most especially... eating yummy vegetables!!!Growing Chefs! offers such informative, engaging content about food. Being able to reach youth to educate them about healthy foods is one of our 3 goals. This is especially exciting as Growing Chefs is running summer camps with youth. They will now be able to experience our farm first-hand and see how their food grows. The experience of eating a vegetable which has just been harvested IS AMAZING! The taste is indescribable. #sustainablefarming #sustainablefood #foodeducation #partnership #growyourownfood #foodpoverty #519london #ldnont ... See MoreSee Less

Strawberries, banana and mint leaves. Naturally delicious!Mint is being grown in a jar. It contains the roots and makes it super handy to walk out on the desk to cut leaves as I need them. A bit of nutrient solution periodically and it is happy! #foodie #foodsecurity #healthyeating #nathansurbanfarm ... See MoreSee Less
