Have you ever played ping pong? …and have you ever stopped and wondered why the paddles for ping pong are so dull and boring? Well, me too! There is an amazing new startup that looks to put an end to this. Here’s some more information about their kickstarter campaign:
The future of table tennis begins now
Table tennis (or ping-pong) has had a tough time of breaking into the mainstream. Despite being the second most played sport in the world, the image of players wearing headbands, an all white sports kit and using red and black paddles is not exactly one that gets the heart racing.
Uberpong aims to change all that by combining great art and design with ping-pong paddles. Graphic designers, illustrators and artists from around the world have contributed their work and this will be printed professionally onto the rubber.
“Andre Agassi changed the way tennis was perceived when he wore crazy outfits on his way to winning Grand Slam tournaments,” says founder David Lowe. “We want to do a similar thing with ping-pong. The Uberpong ping pong paddle designs are an extension of your personality. We want you to play with style,”
Uberpong is a Kickstarter project and we need your help to hit our funding target. If we miss it, we get nothing! To get behind us, visit: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1539217842/uberpong-the-future-of-table-tennis-begins-now and http://www.weheartpong.com
One of the paddles that you can get is of my design so if you support this cause you can opt to have a Clint Wilson ping pong paddle…how rad is that!? So head on over and support the kickstarter campaign, every single dollar helps.
