title: Joola Table Tennis Club
html_text: 'Ping pong balls ricochet off 10 tables arranged neatly within a 5,000
square-foot dedicated space, only to rise up and meet a whipping paddle that instantaneously
reverses their direction, back over the net and across the table. The scene may
conjure images of international tournaments, and for good reason: Joola Table Tennis
Club, an official table and apparel sponsor of USA Table Tennis, was never bound
to take the game lightly. Instead of limiting invitations to championship-caliber
players, however, the club also invites mere mortals to take hold of a paddle, line
up themselves up at a table, and try their hand at the challenging, fast-paced sport.
Novices can enroll in private or group training with a professional, or even rent
a robot for concerted stroke repetitions or practice shaking someone''s hand. When
ready to put their new skills to the test, players can also take on challengers
during all-day open play sessions.'
