A popular venue on Ipswich Waterfront for watching sports and playing games is set to close this week after being open for five years.

Wiff Waff, based in Regatta Quay in Key Street, next to Pizza Express, will close on Sunday, April 14.

The sports bar has been based on the Waterfront since opening in 2018, taking over from Grand Central Bar.

It has been a popular destination thanks to having one of the biggest TV screens in the town, along with table tennis, snooker, punching machines, dart boards and an air hockey table on offer.

The bar also hosts regular events, including karaoke nights, quiz nights and salsa and bachata classes.

Bar staff confirmed the news, while the company that runs events at the bar posted on Facebook their sadness about the popular bar closing.

Employees also said that they would like to see the bar continue to be used as such by a new business.
