Twitter Presence & Table Tennis NightClub

Racketlon on Twitter is getting bigger and bigger and with the addition of @rayjordan81 to @keithracketlon and also accounts from the likes of squash professional and British Champions Sarah-Jane Perry and Stuart Foster (Foster being the British Vets Champion as opposed to a squash professional) the presence is growing more and more. It’s also an excellent way to promote the sport and get directly in touch with journalists and promoters. So lets get tweeting. Tweet about practice, ideas and tournament experiences!

There is an exciting new concept being developed and in Camden - a table tennis nightclub. they have an interesting proposition which can be investigated further at the website below. there is even table tennis speed dating so there is value in table tennis after all? TT London
