I’ve just discovered Ping! Bristol. It’s awesome. From the creators of Street Pianos (remember the photo in my latest London blog of a free-for-all piano on the South Bank?) and Talking Bins (no idea) comes… public table tennis!
“Ping! is an innovative three year street ping pong project which provides people with opportunities to play social and competitive table tennis, free of charge. The aim is to get as many people as possible across the whole of the UK playing – to bring about a sense of community spirit and get more people playing sport on the run up to the Olympics.” says the blurb.
Bats and balls are provided – I hope they’ve bought spares because that can’t last long in Britain – along with masterclasses and various complementary events. The Pingnic is inspired.
If only I wasn’t so rubbish at playing.
