Events

Every Friday: From 11am until 1pm, at Carers Leeds.

Bat & Chat

Pop in any Friday for a fun game of ping-pong. It doesnt matter if you’re a ping-pong pro or a table tennis trainee, any carer or cared for person can attend. It’s free and no experience is required.

If ping pong isn’t really your thing, why not just come along and socialise instead, you can chat while the other people bat! It’s a great opportunity to get out, get some exercise, and meet people.
