Ping-pong, table tennis, flim flam, wiff waff - whatever you want to call it, the sport is becoming (believably or not) the new star-studded craze to sweep the globe. A-Listers who have tried their hand include Jay-Z, who recently staged a ping-pong themed birthday party, and Susan Sarandon, actress and co-owner of the first ever ping-pong nightclub SPiN.
Harking back to ping-pong’s original name, The Wiff Waff Brothers (aka Ollie and Jamie) have taken this quintessentially English pastime and made it the centre piece for an evening of music, dancing, drinking and theatre, all held in an East London warehouse. The brothers have one mission: to spread the Gospel According to Wiff Waff. And, of course, to have a bloody good time.
Brothers Wiff and Waff promise all the usual table tennis games - the run around the table knock out game, ace the asshole, sweaty so and so and soon, the chaos table. In the words (well, not quite) of London Mayor Boris Johnson “Wiff Waff's coming home”. Jessica Heggie
The Wiff Waff Brothers' night will take place every Friday night at the Pattern Cutters Warehouse, 242-248 Kingsland Road, Dalston from the beginning of September.
