Red And Black Rebellion #1 Review

Uberpong Red & Black Rebellion poster

Uberpong timed their launch party with another world first. The Red And Black Rebellion is an event created by Uberpong where players cannot play with boring, traditional red & black paddles. Instead, attendees have to play with one of Uberpong’s designer or custom ping pong paddles. In place of singles tournaments, there are two doubles tournaments – the men’s and the co-ed (we want to see some camaraderie at our events!!). Biljana Golic (BiBa), a Serbian female professional table tennis player, made a special guest appearance. In her role as honorary “Uberpong Assassin”, she beat everyone but Uberpong founder David Lowe managed to get 5 points off her before falling. Thanks to everyone who came down to Frank to make it a Sunday Funday and congrats to Cesar/Johnny for winning the men’s doubles and to Robin/Kerri for winning the co-ed doubles.
