Street Ping Pong— Ping!
Do you like table tennis? If you had travelled to cities in the UK like London or Birmingham last summer, you might have seen one of the dozens of free tablesthat were there as part of a project （项目） called Ping!.
What is Ping!?
Ping！is a three-year table tennis project. It has been running since 2010 and this year, 2012, is the final year. The idea is to put free table tennis tables in eight different towns in the UK for four weeks during the summer. Each table comes with its own bats and balls and is free to play. You can find the tables outdoors.
What does Ping! hope to achieve?
It would be great if Ping！helped find a new Olympic table tennis star but what Ping! really hopes. to achieve is just to get people playing and having fun together."Putting a ping pong table on the street gives people a chance to connect with other people," said MeeraSodha, Ping! Project Manager.
One of the towns that took part in the project was Hull, a city in England. Forty-five tables were put into the city. JakobAdamski, an ESOL student learning.English, said, "I really enjoyed playing table tennis in the park. It was alsoagood way for me to practise my English and meet people."
