POPP (Public Outdoor Ping Pong) is an initiative that has been launched in Australia. Three ping pong table designs have been produced and installed at over 170 diverse locations throughout the country.
THE FLAGSHIP – First in, best dressed
The Flagship table is a robust 700kg steel outdoor ping pong table. The beast is fully welded (even the net) with an industrial standard, single color surface treatment. The Flagship often has the work of locally commissioned artists applied. POPP calls it “public interactive art”.
THE EPHEMERALIST – A lesson in minimalism
The Ephemeralist is an outdoor ping pong table for the minimalists. If you are a fan of Buckminster Fuller, this table is for you! The table has been commissioned by and permanently installed at some iconic locations including Harry Siedler’s MLC centre in Sydney.
THE SCHOOL – Like chess but faster
The School table is the first of its kind: a permanent outdoor table tennis table designed and made specifically for Australian schools. The School Table is a quick assembly piece and consists of a galvanized steel frame and net. This table responds to the needs and requests of primary and secondary schools looking for innovative ways to better engage and provide for their students.
