Ping Pong in Leicester Square

There's a strange pong in the streets of London, but fortunately it is not the smelly kind. What other kind is there, you ask? Well it involves a table, net, two bats, and a little ball. Yes, you've guessed it: ping pong.

Ping! London is a fun community project giving everyone in London the chance to socialise over a game of table tennis. For free. Cool, huh?

Over the next month or so, you'll see ping pong tables popping all over London. There will be coaching classes, competitions, and lots of free-play. Have a look at the schedule to find out what's on:
