To travel is to live twice.... Here's why: (1) life is a journey... (2) if we travel during the journey, we have a second trip, so (3) that's like living a second time.

Ping pong in a public park in Auckland, New Zealand
Auckland has small city parks between the major streets. This one is near a university. The ping pong tables are weather proof and permanent. The solid ‘net’ has a place to store balls and paddles. It’s free to play and no one steals the balls or paddles. There were 4 tables around this plaza. Similar ping pong parks are elsewhere in New Zealand. LINK Excerpts from an article in Stuff
Gap Filler and the Chinese Cultural Association have set up three table tennis tables for public use in Christchurch.
Gap Filler installed three concrete table tennis tables in collaboration with the Chinese Cultural Association (CCA) of Christchurch.

The tables are due to remain throughout summer and are free to use. People can bring their own paddles and balls, or borrow some from Coffee Therapy on Hereford St and Cosmic in Re:START mall.
Any other cultural community groups that wanted to be involved in putting together a public project to showcase their community were welcomed to get in touch with Gap Filler via firstname.lastname@example.org
An Open Letter to
the City Commission of Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Is there a possibility that
ping pong tables could be installed for public use?
Cost of a typical public ping pong table
Metal from POPP.world (there is an office in California)
Jul 25, 2015 - There are plenty of ways to build an outdoor ping pong table, from concrete to wood to metal, but we chose this method for its costliness, durability and artistic beauty. Concrete tables are what most municipalities would use for their parks and they cost anywhere from 4 to 8 grand.
We estimate the cost of all the materials to be about $900. Most of the photos you see here are from the table's placement on Market street, near 6th street, as part of the Market Street Prototyping Festival held in early April of 2015.
