It’s now just as common for an office to have a ping pong table as it is for an office to have desks and chairs. Ok not quite. But although companies bought into the ping pong trend a while back, its popularity continues to grow. London’s businesses now even have their own social ping pong league, where teams can meet and compete with other companies close by. Members include the likes of Transferwise, Silicon Valley Bank, MarketInvoice and Lyst to name a few.
Here’s our selection of the top spaces with their own ping pong tables, some of which play in the social league:
Energy House Digital
EHD are a small digital agency based in Shoreditch. Putting their love of ping pong to one side, having met the team personally, they’re some of the nicest people you’ll meet. The space they have on offer is a great size for a small creative agency. They have 2 meeting rooms you can make use of as well as a very well maintained kitchen and breakout area. What’s more, the office catches a lot of sunshine during the day, which really brightens your day and warms you up, even in winter.
