Cities and towns are incorporating table tennis into community spaces because it’s an activity that can be enjoyed by all ages. The ping pong tables also happen to be monolithic ‘blank canvases’ for us to apply thematic and customized graphic design and illustration.
The orange ping pong table is an homage to Midtown Carmel, the urban area where Carmel’s Midtown Plaza is located. The multi-colored table artfully lists the City’s large network of bicycle routes and loops (BikeCarmel.com). The blue and green table is a playful take on the City’s roundabouts surrounded by noteworthy landmarks and community-focused amenities.
If you are a municipality or member of a parks and recreation department, this is a fun opportunity to combine creative murals while encouraging a healthy physical activity!
