It was the end of the workday on a cool Friday in October in London, England. David Lowe and his opponent were locked in an epic ping pong battle. score was 20-20 in a best-of-21 game. The winner would have bragging rights and the loser would have to wait until Monday to attempt to redeem himself with a rematch.
This was the atmosphere almost every day at the small tech startup in London where David and his opponent worked. Through the game of ping pong, the employees became sharper, more competitive and befriended each other. They became a dynamic team that worked well together and fostered a competitive and productive work environment. Through this experience, David noticed that everyone there had a unique personality and style, but neither was reflected in the game.
David created Uberpong, a company that would bring style and customization to table tennis and change the face of the game. He also realized that a social ping pong movement could improve society in the same way it has in England, China, Germany, the Philippines and his workplace.
Until Uberpong, the words, “cool paddle” had probably never been uttered. But now, with personalized, stylish paddles, everyone can have a ping pong personality.
