What has inspired me to create this group? The straight 5.0 tennis player that I beat consistently in pong; The excellent food that we all prepare for my Pong Parties. So, maybe we start this group simply with Gay Table Tennis (aka Ping-Pong, Ping Pong or just Pong) talent; usually the talent comes from other racquet sports such as tennis or squash; but a good pong player is a good ponger! The venue is simple: two tournament tables (cost $1,500 each) that allow us to play singles and doubles for competitive and social fun at a private home in Oakland. Please understand: Six Inches, Hand Free Play and Pong Etiquette and Manners (including friendly and inclusive). Pongers are expected to BYO Beverage, Pay $10 in Advance for Table Time, Pitch In with five minutes in Setting Up or Tear Down of Tables.
