Table tennis, anyone?

The City of Kamloops has partnered with the Rotary Club of Kamloops Daybreak to install permanent concrete table tennis setups in Riverside Park and on McArthur Island. The Riverside table is being erected now, while the McArthur Island table is expected to be installed next year.

A City of Kamloops crew pours a cement slab that will host a permanent concrete table tennis setup near the pickleball courts in Riverside Park downtown.

A second concrete table is expected to be installed next year on McArthur Island, near where the outdoor exercise equipment is located, at the east side of the park.

Mike Doll, the city’s parks planning supervisor, said the Rotary Club of Kamloops Daybreak paid for the tables, while the city is installing them.

The eventual introduction of the concrete tables — which will include permanent metal netting — adds to the free amenities in the city, which includes three disc golf courses, 10 pickleball courts, numerous tennis courts and a mini-golf course.

Bryce Herman of Rotary Daybreak told KTW the club hopes to add more tables in the city in the future.
