Tables and players thrive when activation occurs around tables and people feel welcomed into a community of like-minded individuals. The ease of restrictions has certainly increased demand for outdoor table tennis and in a bid to bring some of our table venues to life this Summer, Ping! London have joined forces with StreetTT to activate tables and communities within select boroughs of the city.
So, what is StreetTT?
Started in 2020 by two programmers just looking for a game of Table Tennis, StreetTT unites all players in a single competition, now over 20 cities in Europe.
StreetTT is the first ever mobile and web application to connect urban table tennis players into a worldwide online table tennis league. The StreetTT app gives players a way to submit their match results by scanning their opponent’s QR code. These results provide the basis for a universal Elo rating and detailed game statistics for each player. Players can view how they rank out of their city, club, country and globally.
There are no fixtures: play on any table, at any time, against any player!
Players create and attend user generated meetups which convert the existing landscape of public and private outdoor tables into a network of exciting match venues. StreetTT is community moderated so that club and city moderators can create one off tournaments and award the results from these competitions.
This is your sports story but for real. Choose a game name, sign in and enter a living arena of TT champions. Find new opponents, settle old scores. Be prepared for thrilling Table Tennis duels and epic player journeys as live match results rock the city.
Sign up now, free forever at www.streettt.com and on Google Play.
There are no in-app adverts of premium features, StreetTT is a public gateway that does not collect or sell personal data. StreetTT uses game information to encourage players to play more, in-app and via a monthly email. Put your player profile on the map but keep your privacy: game names, no images, no messaging, just data.
For any informal groups of players, instant messaging groups, clubs and street collectives, StreetTT welcomes the administrator to join as a voluntary, community moderator (MOD). A MOD can create a club, assign club membership and oversee a club ranking for all of the members. MODs run regular competitive events and tournaments and submit results on behalf of other players.

In usual circumstances (pre COVID), London presents the largest opportunity for outdoor table tennis play with the city hosting approx. 200 outdoor tables most of which funded through TTE’s Ping! programme. London therefore presents a great opportunity to link with and implement the concept and will initially focus activation within Camden, Hackney, Islington & Westminster throughout Summer 2021.
