The Best Table Tennis Bars
Whether you’re a table tennis pro with a backhand like Boris Becker or a novice with a need to sharpen those ball skills, getting involved at ping pong bars is just about the most fun you can have with a humble game of wiff-waff. With a bottle of beer or a cocktail in hand you can hone your game against fierce opponents, take to the table as a group or flirt on a fun first date, and in some of the very best bars in town, too. There’s no doubting that the table tennis craze has well and truly bounced its way into London bars and pubs.
Bounce Farringdon
121 Holborn, Holborn, London, EC1N 2TD
Arriving in the year of London’s Olympic Games triumph, Bounce stole the gold medal in the social ping pong stakes thanks to its pavilion-sized set-up and historical standing, being sited at the very birthplace of table tennis. With 14 tables, a pizza menu and impressive cocktails to boot, Bounce is a dedicated ping pong party spot. Reserve a table and let the games begin!

Old China Hand
8 Tysoe Street, Clerkenwell, London, EC1R 4RQ
Compete for a spot at the ping pong table to the rear of this Clerkenwell favourite that defines itself as ‘no ordinary pub’. The friendly vibe here makes this the perfect spot for a casual game of table tennis. And who knows, at this fun pub, ping pong may even become sing song courtesy of Old China Hand’s piano.

The Book Club
100-106, Leonard Street, Shoreditch, London, EC2A 4RH
You’ll be hard-pushed to find a place at the ping pong table on The Book Club’s ground floor by night as the beers flow and the competition hots up. But this venue is open all hours, making it a great destination for some daytime batting action in amongst the hipsters. There are some top bar snacks for refuelling, too.

Blueberry
2-4 Paul Street, The City, London, EC2A 4NH
Found on the cusp of Shoreditch and The City, this trendy bar may have an impressive organic tea collection, but for the thrill-seekers out there, there’s also ping pong aplenty. Table Tennis Tuesdays are sure to get things fired up in Blueberry, and fear not novices, as the bar even offers free coaching for the less practised 'ping pongers'.
