Pop Up Ping Pong Party
Ping Pong has had a renewed resurgence in popularity in the capital. From trendy bars like the Book Club installing tables to the Olympic boom and outdoor tables everywhere, people are getting their paddles out.
Who can forget our buffoonish mayor making a stir about Wiff Waff?
Well, one year ago, Pop Up Ping Pong took up this trend and began a journey across London throwing ping-pong parties. These events are filled with street food, music and liquor to show off the wild side of the game.
They have been from Kensington to Shoreditch via Peckham and back, and now are unleashing the next stop: St James's Park Underground Station.
From Thursday 15th May until Sunday 18th May you can enjoy cold-pressed juices for £4, cocktails for £6 and home-ground coffees at £2 from inside the art deco landmark of 55 Broadway at their boutique ping pong parlour.
It's open from 8am until 11pm, to cater to that much-needed morning endorphin boost, offer a lunchtime boredom-buster and create a fresh new hangout come nightfall.
Whether you'll be indulging in the artfully concocted beverages at the cherry blossom bar or a game of ping pong under the neon lights, there's never been anything like it on the tracks.
Bookings are now open for the Olympic-sized playing table by visiting their website at £10 per half hour.
