Faced with an abundance of willing participants and the inherent limitations of traditional ping-pong, someone, somewhere knew, there must be a better way. But how? American Tripps founder Allan Hough returned from Germany a few years back with an answer: Berlin style ping-pong, a take on the sport in which dozens of (usually inebriated) players circle the table taking shots and trading off the paddle to the next in line, a swirling, chaotic and endlessly entertaining take on the sport that’s taken off in San Francisco bars and warehouses. Throw a little 90’s hip hop into the mix, and you’ve got a party for the ages.
