SPIN: An exhibition inspired by table tennis, designed by artists across Scotland.

A fun new art exhibition in Glasgow is using the power of ping-pong to help raise funds for a community table tennis club.

The SPIN exhibition features table tennis paddles customised with eye-catching and colourful designs by artists, illustrators, designers and copywriters from across Scotland.

All proceeds from the three-week fundraiser will go to Drumchapel Table Tennis Club (DTTC), who provide a vital service in the heart of Glasgow.

The exhibition is the brainchild of Glasgow-based creative studio Pim-Pam, which worked closely with Terry McLernon, Chairman at Table Tennis Scotland, to bring the idea to life.

Pim-Pam Creative Director, Luke McCarthy, said: “Terry and the club have kindly donated 40 paddles for our creative community to get their hands on. We’ve had so much interest in the exhibition with artists all across Scotland looking to get involved.

“The designed paddles will be displayed throughout the exhibition and available for purchase, with all proceeds going back to the Drumchapel Table Tennis Club.”

DTTC is one of the biggest clubs in Britain, with more than 300 members aged between eight and 80 actively playing each week. A key driving force in the Drumchapel Community Sports Hub, the club plays a huge part in the development of the sport in Scotland.

Based in Wasps Studio’s South Block building in the Trongate area of Glasgow, the SPIN exhibition launches on Thursday 28 March at 6pm and ends on 19 April.

The opening night offers visitors the chance to meet the artists, learn more about the DTTC and its impact across Scotland and watch some of the club’s players exhibit their skills.
