Breaking News24 – 29th April 2018 – The breaking news is coming in with the arrival of Carom table tennis.
Carom billiard table tennis is coming to the UK, and it’s a big deal for both players and the sport itself.
Carom table is a British brand of table tennis, with the first commercial aired in December last year, and the company has been expanding rapidly over the last few years.
With the launch of a new model called Carom 1, which features the same set up as its new model, the company is expanding into the wider UK market, and they’re looking to bring the sport to more people across the country.
The UK is home to the world’s biggest number of table-tennis players, with a total of more than 3,000 registered players.
That’s up from about 300 in 2017, with many more coming into the game.
The Carom team say they’re seeing a lot of interest in table tennis in the UK.
The sport is growing rapidly, and with the introduction of the Carom 3 table tennis table, it’s going to be big for both sides.
“It’s just the right time for the sport,” said Ben Bish, a senior player on the Caram 1 team.
“It’s an exciting time, and we can’t wait to get started.
It’s an amazing product that we’ve worked hard on over the years.”
It’s important to recognise that the Caroms 1 table is not a regular table tennis set-up.
It has a built-in ball, and its different to the one that players use to play table tennis on.
This new version of the table is slightly different to what you’ll see on the traditional Carom sets, and will come in different sizes.
Bish said he’d been playing on a different Carom set for around three years, and was excited about this new model.
“This is a lot better, the feel is better, and I feel more comfortable,” he said.
“I can go out on a tournament and feel confident that I can play.
I’m just so stoked.”
A Carom 2 table comes in at a price of £895.

The Carom family is also hoping that the table will help make it easier for players to get involved in the game of table soccer, or other competitive table tennis events.
“We think it will be fantastic for people who want to play at home, and also for people like us who are in the office, who have lots of time to go and play,” said Bish.
“When you play a sport like table tennis where the ball is always on the table, and you’re not in the room with people, then you need to be comfortable in the way you play.”
The Caroms’ new model is a big step for the company, and their ambition is to make it available in more cities around the UK over the next few years, with plans to expand the line into the UK by the end of the year.
“We’re aiming to make this the best table tennis model that we can,” said Billiard team member Mark Lacey.
“Carom has built an amazing line up, and now we’re taking it to a whole new level.”
