Ping!The ping pong trend continues in London this summer with Ping!, a new street ping pong project which aims to provide people with the opportunity to play social and competitive ping pong for free. Positioning tables in a number of unique places, Ping! now has more than 500 tables in public spaces across the UK including Birmingham, Brighton and Hove, Bristol, Oxford, Sheffield and, of course, London. As well as the tables, there will also be a number of scheduled events offering the chance to partake in party games and competitions, and watch professional tournaments. August sees the table in Canary Wharf host showcase matches while Soho hosts a Ping! Picnic. Further venues across London include The Brunswick Centre in Bloomsbury, Windmill Gardens in Brixton and Granary Square, Kings Cross. For the full listings and event details, visit the official website.

Home to the big banks, Canary Wharf is a purpose-built office hub in the regenerated Docklands. With the site extending to over 97 acres it's almost like a separate city in the east of London, powered by and for the financial sector. More about Canary Wharf
