Outdoor tables at restaurant # 1, # 2 and # 3

The CERN Table Tennis Club, with the support of the CERN Staff Association, has installed outdoor tables outside all three restaurants. These tables are in self-service, and everyone at CERN is encouraged to go and try their skills with the little plastic ball, and of course train to prepare for the CERN TT championship. 

You are all welcome to contact me to offer your help in the organization of the tournament.
