HISTORY

Bounce is verifiably located on the very same site on which the game of ‘ping pong’ was first created and patented in 1901.

Founded in 1795, Jaques – the oldest sports and games makers in the world, created some of the finest indoor and outdoor British family games including: Croquet, Snakes and Ladders, The Staunton Chess Set and Tiddledy winks, to name but a few. In 1891 John Jaques II invented Gossima – a game made for the dining room, born from the frustration of tennis surpassing croquet at the then Wimbledon Croquet club. This game was essentially indoor ping pong, but it proved unpopular with UK audiences.

In 1901, John Jaques III re-launched Gossima as Ping Pong at Hamleys and the game became a huge overnight success.

The official rules of Ping Pong were based on the game rules written by John Jaques II’s Gossima. Jaques owned the copyright to Ping Pong, but as the world grew more competitive the table tennis association was born because Jaques would not allow them the use of the trademark ‘Ping Pong’. By 1910 everyone was playing and in this year Slazenger also launched a rival game called Whiff Whaff.

Ping Pong however was the very start of table tennis as we know it today, and all created on the very same site on which Bounce sits.
