Ping pong (or table tennis) is both a brain game and incredibly physical. Featuring a fast-paced mix of aerobics, strategy and hand-eye coordination, ping pong combines both physical and mental exercise to achieve the ultimate in health and fitness.
How? The speed, spin and placement of the ball requires players to have gross and fine muscle movements. While the constancy and repetition of a rally and the tactical strategies inherent in the game keeps their brain sharp, body agile and blood pumping!
To dive a little deeper, outdoor ping pong delivers in leaps and bounds – for your mind and body.
Every superhero has their origin story and POPP’s began in 2010 when pioneering a concept of Public Playable Art. Using an iconic table design, POPP recognized that ‘artworked’ outdoor ping pong tables created a multitude of cultural, place, social and economic benefits for communities.
Designed for DIY (Do It Yourself) Artwork, the icon packs a placemaking punch. Artwork that can be applied on the table tops includes original work, typography, contrasting block colors, patterns, logos and slogans, to name a few.
DIY Artwork is applied or coordinated by the customer on site after delivery.
The DIY Artwork options available to customers and all relevant information, guidelines and steps for DIY Artwork preparation and application are included in the DIY Artwork Information document – available on request.

POPP seeks to deliver tables within 6-8 weeks from time of order.
Every POPP table is manufactured locally in our US workshop to meet our exacting and tested standards. Delivery is then organized and managed by POPP from our workshop to your site. Deliveries of POPP tables are designed to be easy, fast and completed in one stage.
All tables are freighted from our US workshop. The cost of delivery is $495 per table for metropolitan deliveries. For regional, remote or isolated locations please contact email@example.com or your local sales representative for a delivery quote.
POPP tables are designed for permanent outdoor installation. They can be moved or repositioned on occasion if landscaping, redevelopment or other events so require it (unlike concrete tables which can only be demolished), however the tables are not of the 'fold-away' variety.
POPP and outdoor ping pong have found their home in a variety of urban landscapes. As a result, we work with a diverse array of communities and spaces which means every placement is different. However, there are certain features that add to, enable or complement the placement of a POPP table including seating, lighting, a good playing surface and nearby amenities.
POPP tables are predominantly installed on pre-existing surfaces including concrete, asphalt, crushed granite, crushed limestone, compacted material, paving, pour in place rubber, gravel or clay surfaces.
The ICON requires assembly and anchoring by the customer and is a simple 1 hour process with the use of the POPP ICON Assembly Instructions.
The ICON table conforms to the International Table Tennis Federation specifications: 9' x 5' x 2.5' h.
