Llangunllo Table Tennis Club

Llangunllo Table Tennis Club.

The Llangunllo Table Tennis Club was founded over 12 years ago by local residents, Maggy and Bob and is popular in the community, meeting every Thursday evening 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm between September and May at Llangunllo Community Hall.

At only £2 per session, which includes refreshments, the table tennis club is great value for money. Not only does it help with keeping active both mentally and physically, it’s also a great way of meeting others from our community and great fun too. If you would like to join us, just come along, you will be most welcome.
