You can call us many things, but a Ping Pong hater is not one of them. But when we heard about the membership plan for Spin New York, the new members only ping pong club opening on Park Avenue South, we had to shake our heads. Spin is offering annual memberships for $60 a month or $600 a year for individuals, and $90 a month or $900 a year for families. For that hefty fee, members get access to:
a 13,000 square foot ping pong social club on Park Avenue in Manhattan’s Flatiron District. The club offers unparalleled table tennis courts, including Olympic quality cushioned flooring, 16 individual tables, and a stadium-like center court. In addition, SPIN New York houses a pro shop, lounge, bar, private room sponsored by Fred Perry and over a dozen internationally known professional coaches and players who are available for private and group instruction.
Wow. Double wow. When cash strapped New Yorker's are budgeting their cash, somehow the $60 a month for ping pong access seems likely to be the first to go.
