Vacant Town Shop To House Table Tennis?

One of the empty shops in town could become home to pop-up table tennis.

The idea was suggested by Jersey Sport CEO Catriona McAllister.

It's since been taken on by the President of the Jersey Table Tennis Association, Paul Routier.

"We have sent out feelers to estate agents to see if there's anybody that would be likely to respond to our requests.

"We haven't had anything back as of yet, but certainly the constable of St Helier, the Town centre Manager and Jersey Sport have been very supportive.

"The empty Next property would be good in Queen's Street, but we're open to offers really. It doesn't have to be indoors, we could do open-air as well."

The Next store has been vacant since late 2017.

Letting agents Buckley & Co say it's not in a position to comment on the site's future.
