Encapsulated by the timeless utterances of our capital’s mayor during the 2008 Beijing Olympic handover, “Ping pong was invented on the dining tables of England! It was called wiff waff! It’s the difference between us and the other nations in the world.” Boris then went on to explain: “The French saw a dining table and the opportunity to have dinner; we looked at a dining table and saw an opportunity to play wiff waff!” Well, finally, in post-Olympic London, wiff waff is coming home. Here at Bounce, in the country in which the sport was first created, you can have fusion cuisine in the truest sense of the word. Bounce combines the French’s infatuation with gastronomy and the British’s preoccupation with heritage. Only at Bounce can you munch on a strip of roasted garlic and rosemary pizza whilst serving a game of doubles, washed down with Earl Grey and gin cocktail. / Caroline Christie
