Monsanto Park garden
When Monsanto Ping Pong Club started in the summer of 2021, everything was still restricted by Covid so they had to look for places that were outdoor, while allowing to stay active and social. Monsanto Park in Lisbon sounded just like the perfect place. Until the winter came and consequently more wind and rain.

Near the Skatepark Monsanto you can find 4 tables in front of the bathrooms. Unfortunately, the conditions aren´t the best because the tables are old with holes and bounce in a funny way. The floor it´s also not flat but if hearing the birds while playing with significant ball unpredictable effects is what drives you, then this might your kind of adventure.

Campo Grande garden
A beautiful garden in the middle of the residential neighborhood of Entrecampos, this garden has one table where you can enjoy yourself and hopefully have someone pop up at the same time. It´s situated next to McDonald’s and usually there are lot´s of students around, since this garden is surrounded by many Universities.

You must take your own equipment and if for some reason when you go, you can´t find anyone to play, you can always walk to the lake and check if you can rent a boat and have a pleasant afternoon riding it.

Not so close to the subway, but within a still bearable 15 minutes’ walk, you will find the Campo Mártires da Pátria garden. With two tables available and next to the basketball court you will have to bring your own equipment and hope someone will be there with the same desire.
