Hollywood actress Susan Sarandon is introducing underprivileged kids to ping pong by donating equipment to schools.

The Thelma & Louise star, who runs a ping pong club in New York, has teamed up with the American Youth Table Tennis Organization (Aytto) to donate 16 tables to schools in the Big Apple.

She made a visit to Brooklyn Technical High School on Thursday (15Jan15) to meet with students and hand over some of the equipment in person.

Sarandon was seen snapping 'selfies' with the kids and even autographing one of the tables.
