Table tennis can be played in Worle, after a charity bought the equipment for the community to use.

Big Worle, in Clovelly Road, became a charity in November and has been starting new clubs.

The table was partly inspired by the sport’s popularity in a vacant unit in Weston’s Sovereign Shopping Centre.

Big Worle administrator Vicki Tucker said: “The table tennis table was requested by the kids who attend the youth club here but we also felt it would be an asset to Big Worle as it’s a game all ages can get involved with.

“We also realised how well the table tennis tables have been received in the Sovereign Centre too.”

The table is set up outside the Big Worle Hub for people to use when the weather is good.

Big Worle has also started a Tuesday running club, and people should meet at the hub at 6.30pm to take part.

It also hosts craft clubs and regular wildlife walks with North Somerset naturalist Chris Sperring.
