A dynamic three-day event combining the sport and art of table tennis with the spirit of charity and education. Given the recent increase in popularity of America’s favorite pastime, Brookfield, SPiN and Operation Design are working together to showcase this popular sport as never before — with world-class pros and celebrities battling it out, as the New York area’s most amazing players compete for the Brookfield Cup. Street artist Billi Kid, of Public Works Department, will curate the artistic components of the event, an incredible trove of one-of-a-kind pieces of artwork and a live auction to be held on Thursday, November 3rd. Pongtopia! will display extraordinary, creatively painted Ping-Pong tables and paddles by high-profile street and graffiti artists.
