A table tennis tournament will bounce into Bungay as three ping pong tables are installed in the town.
The public tables are part of an initiative called Ping! which is run by Table Tennis England and the Most Active County partnership with Suffolk County Council.
The scheme hopes to make the sport more accessible and encourage the community to maintain good health.
The all-weather ping pong tables have been installed on the Old Grammar Lane play area, in Garden Close and on Meadow Road.
Sue Collins, Bungay mayor, said: "This is an excellent initiative and we're proud to be a part of it. The Ping! project really does provide a great opportunity for everyone in the community to come together in an informal setting and have some fun."
