Ping is a street table tennis festival/project that has been running for 3 years now, however there has been a big push in the run up to the Olympic games this summer.

The tables have been all over the UK in cities like London, Liverpool, Bristol, Northampton, Birmingham, Manchester and Brighton. There is almost no city safe from Ping’s incredible scheme! They have even popped up in Airports and train stations!

There were 300-400 tables in total and almost every single one of them will be staying there FOREVER! Most the temporary locations were meant to end in June or July but have been extended to August and September because of how successful there have been.

The tables are staying because they have been donated to Community centres, charities, organisations and local bars. They will be in charge of the upkeep and will be where you can pick up the bats and balls to play.
