Ping Pong Table Needed

Help me give my students supplies to use for my PSAL girls table tennis team. This is one of the more popular sports at my school due to not having a traditional gym to teach traditional team sports.

My Students

My students are full of energy and hard workers. They strive to be successful each day, overcoming many obstacles from outside of the classroom. The students are concerned about being successful and passing each of their classes. My students are also driven by the positive reinforcement of the teachers here at school. Students at my school have school pride and come together during many events during the school year. All students here have a bright future ahead of them. Thanks again for reading.

My Project

Specifically, this project will maximize the number of students who get to play ping pong during practice.

I am looking for another table to maximize the amount of game play during each practice session to build and develop skill.

Our current table to use is also starting to show signs of wear as it is often mistreated by other after school programs.

This ping pong table would be used by 10-20 students daily. Our students showed an increase of interest in ping pong, but we only have one new table for them to use for match play. I know this new table will help draw interest to my team.
