Boris Johnson, the mayor of London famously announced before the 2012 Olympic Games that “wiff waff was coming home“. Wiff Waff in case you were not aware was the earliest form of table tennis – a primitive post-dinner game played in Victorian England.
Thanks to the Ping! initiative, table tennis tables have started springing up all over England – in parks, outside monuments, in shopping centrer and bars. Another location that has just opened is the Ping bar and restaurant in south-west London – a retro themed venue that oozes Britishness. You can found this location on Uberpong’s world ping pong map here.
