Have a Ball
The Loop’s new table-tennis hangout
Ping-Pong has been your sport ever since you were crowned sixth-grade champion. (Take that, Bobby DeStephano.)
Bring that killer forehand back to life at Killerspin House.
Killerspin, the new table-tennis hangout in the Loop, sells everything from paddles to $3,000 tables. But the real reason to go is to get your game on.
Drop by anytime to play on one of Killerspin?s ten tables. (A $15 fee gets you a paddle and all-day access.) You can come with pals or just show up and play with a stranger.
Alternately, you can sign up for a yearlong membership ($1,200 to $3,600, depending on perks), which gets you lessons with on-site pros and entry to leagues and special events. (BTW: The pro, Ilija Lupulesku, won the silver medal in Seoul. Not a bad partner to have.)
Big companies like Hewlett-Packard and JPMorgan have been known to buy memberships for all their employees. But it?s just as fun to play with that one coworker you actually like, and smack the ball while complaining about work.
See, all that middle-school training finally paid off.
