Fantasies about ping pong, its practice and objects to play with. Regardless of the destination, ping pong will be the starting point of this crazy summer trip. The table, the rackets, the scoreboard, the medals and trophies, the clothing, the training, the skill, the team pairs, the concentration and the excitement. Balls on the tables, tables with dots, rackets, omelettes, bouncy shoes and cooperative friends. How can we reinvent this practice as an intergenerational meeting point in the urban space? How can we practice? What categories can we compete in? And what medals and trophies can we win?
With the support of AMOP.
