A new art exhibition has been launched to raise money for a table tennis club in Glasgow.

BACKSP!N will be displaying table tennis paddles with creative designs that will be available for purchase at a silent auction and then on general sale.

All proceeds will go to Drumchapel Table Tennis Club (DTTC), a community club that aims to promote the development of the sport in Scotland.

The exhibition was created by Glasgow-based design studio Pim-Pam, who are collaborating with Terry McLernon MBE, President of Table Tennis Scotland.

Terry already worked with Pim-Pam on their exhibition SP!N in 2019.

Terry said: “The club is delighted to be working with Pim-Pam again at the BACKSP!N Exhibition. It will show a different side of the table tennis club by collaborating with local and national artists.

“Many of the parents and young people who come to the club have a great interest in the arts and creative industries, and it’s great to get them involved in a project like this.

“It will show the young people and the local community that the club is not just about table tennis but also other activities and looking for young people to join.

“We will be bringing a few players to opening night such as Martin Perry, Lucy Elliott, Aaron Richardson and Paula Callaghan. This will be a great experience for them to showcase their skills in this sport to a new audience.”

Glasgow times:

Comics artist Frank Vrijly, sculptor and Turner Prize winner Martin Boyce, typewriter Raissa Pardini, Scottish landscape painter Robert Kelsey and visual artist Craig Black and many more designers, artists and illustrators have worked on the paddles.

Pim-Pam’s Creative Director, Luke McCarthy, said: “Terry and the club donated 60 paddles and a table for our creative community to get their hands on.

“We’ve had so much interest in the exhibition with artists all over the UK wanting to get involved.

“At a time when there was a lot of uncertainty in the creative arts, it’s great to put on a show where so much talent is working together.

“From graduates to established artists, the exhibition is a true collaboration of many different principles, genres and backgrounds.”

DTTC is one of the largest clubs in Britain, with over 300 members aged between 8 and 80 playing actively every week.

BACKSP!N will launch at 6pm on Friday 26th November and will be held in the South Block building of Wasps Studio in the Trongate area of ​​Glasgow.

It is open to the public Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm and Saturdays 11am to 3pm through December 15th.
