The Future of Ping Pong: Uberpong

Art & Design

Finally! The long-awaited marriage of sport and art, displayed proudly on the most portable of functional canvases: Table Tennis paddles! Combining over twenty graphic designers and artists and those perfect little ping pong paddles, Uberpong is quite brazenly, but accurately, declaring that the future of table tennis begins now. Yes it’s another kickstarter we’re pointing you to, but it’s worth it to finally have the option of buying a paddle that might actually represent your personality. Don’t you think?

Brought into existence by the folks behind Austin-based Origin of Cool, you’ll love that the artists clamoring to be featured on these paddles are from all over the world, and from different styles and backgrounds. Uberpong.

What would your perfect ping pong paddle look like?
