Springtime Ping Pong Party @ the Hut!

Hello OPPPers, it's time for another party! Once again, we'll be hosted by our friends at Ye Olde Hut, a great dive bar (with 2 ping-pong tables!) in Oakland's Rockridge neighborhood.

As always, we'll play Berlin-style ping-pong: one table, one ball, a couple dozen people running around! When you're at either end of the table, it's your turn to hit...then you keep moving. If you miss, you're out, and the circle gets smaller and smaller. The last two people play a very quick match (first to 3 points) to determine that round's winner.

This is a fun, inclusive, and not super-competitive way to play, so it's probably not the time to break out your fastest slam or your most devastating spin. That said, it sure can be a thrill to be the last person standing at the table. Rounds last only about 10 minutes, so if you go out, worry not, you'll be playing again before you know it.

Hope you can come out and join us!

    So, we're gonna see you tonight! Arrive any time. You can bring a paddle if you want, or use one of ours. And bring your friends! Doesn't matter if they play. And by the way—please show some love to our host, Ye Olde Hut, and buy a drink or a pitcher of beer while you're there.
