The Home of ping pong. Spookily located on the very site where the game of ping pong was invented and patented in 1901 by John Jacque 111. Bounce has 17 bespoke tables, a gorgeous restaurant and a cracking cocktail bar. We Love it.

What will I be doing in this class?
To top spin or to deep chop? All the tricks to improve your table tennis. You will be learning the basics. How to serve, how to place and direct the ball, and how to chop and smash. In fact destroy your opponent (in a moderately friendly way). The lesson will end with a mini tournament against other class students.

Do I need to know anything?
Nothing! This class is for all levels of players. Even if you are really good, Olav can up your game.

Meet Olav
In colonial India a doctor and a glazier were on constant call for Wiff Waff. The game involved a couple of books and a golf ball, which was obviously HUGE fun. Now we have bats, a net and Olav, who is even more fun and not the slightest bit dangerous. Olav is the Indytute table tennis coach. He boasts a career that spans ....the world. He is currently head coach for the one of the biggest table tennis companies in the UK and hosts social ping pong events all over London. Spot him whirring away at Bounce and the Blueberry bar. So whether you're a beginner who doesn't know your bat from the paddle, or you yearn to stun them by the swimming pool with your killer smash, Olav is the man for you. He promises to make you feel, comfortable, challenged and empowered ALL AT THE SAME TIME. Oooo, phew!
