Community support

Funding level: £5,001 to £10,000


To fund the establishment of a table tennis area on the Oakdale Road Recreation Ground known locally as Onchan Park. We are looking to provide two table tennis tables and a secure base. Having the use of a table tennis area will encourage the children to use the park more often and the Friends of Group would like to encourage more children to take up this sport.

The Friends of Onchan Park recently secured the future of the park for the
needs of the community. Following our summer fun day the community voted for a MUGA and table tennis area as a priority. In its present state the park is distinctly lacking in sporting facilities and equipment .

Table tennis is a really popular sport in our local community. Children enjoy clubs at both primary and secondary schools in the area and would love to be able to play in out of school hours. Friends of Onchan Park hope be able to provide this much needed table tennis facility for the community as the first step in creating a lasting legacy for the community.

Moment of Pride

Friends of Onchan Park was established in January 2016 in response to a threat of losing the park. We have fought hard to secure this green space for current and future generations. The whole community from primary school to pensioners have joined together to support the groups endeavours.
