150-metre-tall ping-pong bat hotel to wow visitors in China
From [link to www.whatsonchengdu.com]

A 150m-tall hotel, designed in the shape of a ping-pong bat, will be built in Huainan city of China's Anhui province.

It is part of a complex to tap the potential of the sports industry.

The hotel, located in a planned Olympic park covering an area of over 67 hectares, has an estimated investment value of 300mil yuan (RM139mil).

It will feature three parts - the top for sightseeing, the middle will house guest rooms and the bottom has conference facilities.

"The design idea is from ping-pong. A ping-pong bat has a perfect architectural shape for a hotel," said Jin Chang, the director of Huainan Municipal Bureau of Sports.

The complex was designed by Mei Jikui, a renowned architect for sports structures.

Four buildings in the park are also under construction, namely an American football-shaped main stadium, a volleyball-shaped natatorium, a football-shaped gym stadium and a basketball-shaped stadium.

The overall investment of the park is said to be 1.8bil yuan (RM831mil) and it will be built in three phases over five years.
