More than just an
outdoor ping pong table

The ICON combines the game of ping pong, color and the storytelling of artwork and the value of placemaking to create a prized feature in any outdoor space.

Health + Fitness

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.

DIY Artwork

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.

Placemaking

Beyond its eye-catching aesthetic, the ICON breathes life into community and urban spaces through color, art, activity and connectivity. Since 2010, POPP has partnered with its customers to create authentic, active and engaging outdoor spaces and in doing so, is generating real and measurable economic and social value for communities.

‘Ping Pong Placemaking’ with the ICON is an investment in the physical form
of a ping pong-led space – with proven ROI.

Proof of the value of placemaking is in the playing (and the numbers):

  • Increase nearby property values by up to 22%*1

  • Reduce crime and violence rates and create safer places to play and relax*2

  • $1 of investment in public space equates to $20.84 worth of economic benefit*3

  • When inactive adults become active, $76.6bn of potential healthcare savings emerge*4

  • Foster inter-community connectivity and cultivate long-term engagement

  • Attractive communities are where people want to live, work and play
