Billed as the “no look” table tennis battle, it appears a curious game.
The players look away from the table as they hit the ball back and forth between each other. Ping, pong, ping…
It makes for a fascinating scene and does seem to involve a certain amount of skill, Burp supposes.
Fun to watch too. And play, obviously, as Rio and Robin are heard cackling with the cameraman and spectators in the background.
Check out the Ferdinand and van Persie play table tennis without looking video below:
Of course this is not the first time Robin van Persie and Rio Ferdinand have played table tennis together.
Accompanied by a humorous commentator, see the pair compete against each other in this BT Sport ‘Battle of the Bats’ concoction from last month:
… RvP the winner there. 11-9. Well done to the Dutchman.
