This article has been submitted by Cardiff BID

The Cardiff Business Improvement District (BID) has brought a little bit of summertime fun to the streets of Cardiff with the installation of two new ping pong tables on The Friary in Cardiff city centre.

The BID introduced the new tables to make exercise and outdoor activity more accessible to tourists and shoppers exploring the city, who have been quick to pick up the paddles and play a few games on their way around the capital.

The tables are maintained by the Cardiff BID Street Ambassadors and are one of a string of new measures that the BID has introduced to enhance the experience of Cardiff’s streets.

Executive Director of Cardiff BID, Adrian Field said:

“We wanted to make the streets of Cardiff a little bit more fun as well as give shoppers the chance to get active while they explore our city.”

The new table tennis tables are available to play at The Friary every clear day from 10am until 5pm.
