Heard the one about ping-pong diplomacy? In 1971, a team of US ping-pong players became the first Americans to visit communist China, uniting the two sworn enemies.
So if table tennis can thaw the Cold War, imagine what it can do for your lunchtime.
Happily, Paddington Central is ping-pong central with dedicated tables located at the Westway Bridge and Hammerheads.
Free paddles and balls available on each table. If your tables doesn’t have paddles and balls please contact a member of Paddington Central security.
The tables are open all year.
