The Northern Quarter’s favourite leisure pursuit seems to be catching on as staple Chinese restaurant Yang Sing teams up with imported beer Tsingtao to bring the ping pong addiction to Chinatown. Taking place on the first Thursday of each month, Ping Pong Cha combines the city’s best dim sum with good beer and what can only result in a very entertaining game of the leisurely sport. To book your place register here for free or, for £20, reserve yourself a table for an hour to guarantee you get a good mini-tournament under way. Better still, face the wrath of the ball-shooting Dragon Robot and have your turn at fending off one ball a second with plenty of spin. Just prepare to see a competitive side of yourself that you didn’t know existed.

Thu 5 Sep, Yang Sing, Princess Street, M1 4JY, Tel: 0161 236 2200, 6pm – 1am, FREE (or reserve a table for £20),
