Did you know more than 850 million people in the world play table tennis?

Known as a popular sport worldwide, Japan is certainly no exception with over 6,000 people joining the Japanese Table Tennis Association last year. As the popularity of table tennis continues to grow, a new table tennis restaurant/bar—The Rally Table—debuted recently.

Situated in Shibuya, one of the busiest districts in Tokyo, The Rally Table is a table tennis themed sports restaurant where casual vibes, fantastic food and innovative technologies are combined.

If you want to grab a couple drinks, enjoy some delicious cooking and practice your table tennis skills, T4 Tokyo is the place for you. Opened on June 8th, 2017, The Rally Table has four main sections: practice zone, restaurant, bar and gaming area.

The restaurant features a collection of table tennis themed menus, each of which has a eye-catching design, all tied closely to the theme, such as table tennis sour, ping pong racket ice-cream, ping pong pancakes, etc. The food and drinks offered here are at reasonable prices. For ¥1600, you get to enjoy the “Tokyo Cowboy Hamburger Meat Plate” and ¥1200 for Roast Beef Sandwich. The Rally Table also offers “Pasta of the Day” at the price of ¥1000, which even comes with a bowl of sad and soup. As for dinner, a fancier menu would provide you with the protein and vitamins needed after rallying hard against your friends at a table tennis game.

The Rally Table is a casual place where people can sit back and relax while trying some creative cooking. The restaurant/bar even has an eye-opening table tennis gaming section where the latest technology is applied –– a projector divides the tennis table into small blocks, and a digital tracker will calculate the scores based on where the balls land.

Why not have a game against your friends after trying some healthy cooking made from fresh and high-quality ingredients?

Getting there

The Rally Table is a 6-minute walk from the Hachiko Exit of Shibuya Station.
