Colliding all the colour of art with the fun of table tennis we’re creating the most spirited ping pong brand on the planet.

What began life in 2013 as a ping pong party, organised by design agency Fivefootsix, has gone on to raise over £20k for BBC Children in Need, The Alzheimer’s Society, the Roger Federer Foundation, Bite The Ballot, Amnesty International and Trekstock.

As our charity auctions have grown, so have our ambitions. The Art of Ping Pong is now ready to serve up the most exciting ping pong brand – producing stunning bat artworks, ping pong posters, accessories, mini tables and more...

In the last four years we have partnered with some of the world’s most exciting artists, such as: Camille Walala, Anthony Burrill, Malika Favre, Noma Bar, Supermundane, Hattie Stewart, Craig & Karl, Jean Jullien, Crispin Finn, Jordy van den Nieuwendijk, Peter Judson, Morag Myerscough, Jake and Dinos Chapman, Alan Kitching, Ryan Gander and many more.

"Their collaborative efforts result in spectacular new works of art and thousands of pounds for charity.”- Cool Hunting

Behind the scenes

The Art of Ping Pong is run by Algy Batten.

Algy is a creative consultant specialising in helping organisations develop their brand and business direction.

He was previously the co-founder and creative director of design and branding agency Fivefootsix, which closed in 2015 after 11 years of success.


Playful, witty, rude, energetic and brilliantly ridiculous are apt terms to describe the 2016 editions for The Art of Ping Pong, featuring paddles created by some truly exciting UK-based artists and illustrators. The show features work by creative luminaries such as Alan Kitching, Ryan Gander, James Joyce and Thierry Noir, and will see a concurrent auction amass thousands of pounds for a worthy cause, the Alzheimer's Society.
