Hi guys Dan (TTD), Tom (ttnard) and Me (ripper) are going to meet up in London to make a promotion TTD video in regards to the Olympics. The video will show us playing table tennis in various famous areas around London like infront of Big Ben, the London Eye, Buckingham Palace and of course the London Excel Arena where the Olympic table tennis event will take place! We will also try to visit the Olympic park and village area.

So the three of us will be tramping around london with a mini table setting it up and maybe even getting some of the public involved and asking them about their views on table tennis and Olympics and was wondering if anyone has any other ideas about what we could include in the video and any destinations that are famous in London that we could visit!!!

Thanks guys!

Heres the tables we will use thanks to Stiga :)

Awesome Myles! This will be good fun! I need to get a trolley for the tables but will be all good :)

I'm thinking we get the public involved to, take some leaflets, will be good fun. Just need some good music for when editing the video if anyone has some ideas? Needs to be free uncopyrighted music

May contact the Ping London people: http://pingengland.co.uk/find-a-table/
BBC TV centre near Shepherd's Bush might be interested, or Channel 4 near Victoria?
Possibly some of the football clubs as some of their players do play a bit, e.g. Arsenal.

Wow...I never knew this when I was living in London! Wish I did LOL... Great website mate. Used to live at Kensington Garden Square, behind Whiteleys, and Victoria, a flat above William Hill :)

You could try smashing vs lobbing ^^. Might wanna invite Saive to join in for the lobbing haha. Or Jun or Maze. They're close anyway ;)

Haha we could really do with one of those players :)

I guess they will be in London now preparing. I may have to email Jun Mizutani haha

Do it Dan!
Try to go there ask them when they training, I think every top player should be just into this..
Its promotion of their sport, how can they deny? :)
Great idea, I am looking forward for that video..
I know a great music for it, unfortunately I dont know the name .. and dont know how to find it..
But IF I FIND it somehow, I will put it in here.. :)

The only thing is I have no idea where there all training. I think its secret! :( I wonder if we can find out the players locations in London. I think the Singapore team are in Surrey at the moment.

This is an awesome idea!

I've got an idea:
Try shooting from the same distance, angle and position while doing a forehand stroke and watch the magic works when the video's background switches while Bro Dan and Miles is doing the forehand stroke.
That would be awesome at least for the intro ;)
