Stressful day? Need a break from the 9–5? Looking to unwind? Forget meditation, soothing music or whatever your usual relaxation routine entails — it's ping pong time.
Until Friday, September 13, if you're handy with a bat and in the vicinity of Brisbane Quarter, there's nothing a free game of table tennis can't fix. That's what you'll find at The Bat Lounge at 300 George Street from 9am–8pm daily, as well as tables, bats, balls and the telltale sounds of games in action.
That's all there is to it — that, and the cathartic release that comes from letting off steam while hitting a lightweight sphere back and forth. Yes, it's more effective than it sounds. There's also the chance to show off your skills, hone them even further if you need a bit of practice, and to just have a friendly game with your mates, of course.
