On December 10, we opened the Ping Pong project, the second project in our Diverscity: Community Showcase series.

Members of the Chinese Cultural Association and Table Tennis Canterbury came along to celebrate the realisation of the project. We also were thrilled to have a Chinese lion dance, people dressed as pandas and little girls perform a dance. The girls were from the Qiao Rui Dancing arts school. It was a wonderful evening, with passers by stopping to watch and have a go on the tables. Thank you to everyone who came and was a part of the celebration.

Here’s an article which was published in The Press on Monday, 12 December about the opening of the project.
