Get Your Pong On!

Ping Pong.jpg

Get ready for the 2011 U.S. Table Tennis Open! Table Tennis (also known as ping pong) is a sport in which two or four players hit a lightweight, hollow ball back and forth using table tennis rackets. (Think of the championship scene in the movie Forrest Gump.)

This event will take place June 30-July 4 at the Frontier Airlines Center. It is expected to draw over 700 athletes from 25 different countries including: Barbados, Belarus, Brazil, Canada, China, China (Hong Kong), Croatia, France, Germany, Hungary, India, Ireland, Israel, Jamaica, Japan, Mexico, Norway, Pakistan, Philippines, Serbia, Sierra Leone, Singapore, South Korea, Ukraine and Venezuela.

Wanna get in on some of the action? Purchase tickets or head to SPiN, Milwaukee's own ping pong club, to brush up on your skills!
