Table tennis prodigy Darius Knight says the sport has saved him from the get-rich-quick attitude that made many of his friends turn to crime.
The south Londoner is the rising star of British table tennis. He is a three-time British under-21 national champion and European youth champion, and has made the sport appeal to youngsters coming up behind. Darius’s talent and background have made him the perfect figurehead for the Fred Perry Urban Cup, which promotes table tennis in inner cities.
Table tennis club membership numbers have been falling since the late 1970s, but it’s hoped initiatives like the Urban Cup will reverse the trend.
In the competition, set up by the English Table Tennis Association and clothing brand Fred Perry, players from eight cities compete in a tournament in London.
“Table tennis is like my baby,” says Darius. “It was my saviour, giving me a new direction from a young age. I was fortunate.”
As a child, Darius lived on a council estate in Lambeth, south London. He spent much of his time with a gang of 15 boys. Darius found that table tennis gave him a purpose, while many of his friends went in the wrong direction, getting involved in crime.
“They wanted the quickest way of getting what they wanted and sometimes that meant doing negative things,” says Darius. “That was why I got into table tennis. It opened a lot of gates and has made my life easier.
“I was always pretty good at sport, but with table tennis I started off at the bottom. I was taunted by other players who had better skills than me, so I was determined to be the best.
“I was fascinated by the game. It requires speed, reflexes, technique and strategy. Anyone can play but when you take it to a higher level, it’s very technical. For me, it’s like one fast and furious chess game.”
Darius’s training started in a shed in Wandsworth, but he soon caught the attention of the table tennis authorities.
He now trains at the prestigious English Institute of Sport Sheffield, where he has gone from strength to strength.
His explosive style and athleticism have turned him into a star attraction at tournaments in Britain and abroad. Darius aims to build on his national and European youth titles by making his mark as a senior player.
He says: “I’d like to become a top-class table tennis coach and give something back, especially in London. Being able to win at the highest level for your country is the best thing ever.”

‘Table tennis: anybody, anytime, anywhere’
Throughout the world, people play table tennis for exercise, recreation and social outlet. In fact, it trails only soccer as a participant sport. Little understood and lightly regarded in The United States, table tennis offers several advantages as a life sport that have caused it to be embraced by millions of players worldwide.
LITTLE RISK OF INJURY
As a non-contact sport, using a ball that weighs only a few grams, table tennis is practically a risk-free sport. Table tennis players do not run the risk of being struck by lightning, breaking bones, banging heads, concussion, or being mistaken for a deer.
Table tennis, when played competitively, has an impressive list of physical benefits, the most obvious of which is eye-hand coordination. The speed, spin and placement of the ball are crucial, and practiced players are expert in both creating and solving puzzles involving these three attributes.
Improved reflexes result because of the fast-paced nature of the sport over very short distances. Both gross and fine muscle movements are improved. The game is distinguished by bursts of exertion and recovery, leading to fast-twitch muscle development. Over the course of play, a fair, yet not extreme, amount of aerobic activity occurs. Players can set their own level of involvement.
Table tennis is accurately described as ‘high-speed chess’. The mental alertness encouraged by the sport’s tactical challenges is particularly good for seniors. The ability to concentrate on applying a tactic is good for all ages. Table tennis is available year-round as a social outlet. It is one of the few sports in which size, age, and sex are irrelevant competitive factors. This aspect has led to it’s adoption as the world’s most popular life sport and the slogan “table tennis: anybody, anytime, anywhere”.

A small foldaway table is perfect for singles at home, while your local social ping pong venue or park table will have enough space for full-size games of round-the-table.
9. It is a very safe activity. Compared to many sports, there are very few health and safety concerns.
10. Ping pong can be played all year round, day or night – it is a non-seasonal game when played at one of the indoor social venues or bars. You can of course play outside when the weather allows. Find a table near you on this map, and add it to your ‘my places’ in your own google account.
