SPORTS fans have fallen in love with a new club.

A new table tennis club at New College Durham is attracting up to 60 students every week.

Weekly Wednesday lunchtime coaching sessions are held in an informal social space, rather than a sports hall, to encourage new members.

Coach Peter Whitfield, from Sacriston Table Tennis Club, said: “The lunchtime table tennis programme is a great idea.

“The casual approach seems to work and it’s not too competitive, so non-sport students are more keen to join in.”

Following the club’s success, the college has launched a coaching programme for staff.
