There is no victory so pointedly sweet – or defeat so nards-crushingly cruel – as that encountered on a ping-pong table.
Something about the unbearable lightness of the game. You have not experienced the full range of humanity until you’ve seen a grown man slam a one-oz. ball across a table and release a thunderous, Ric Flair-ian yawp.
Well, whatever: it’s fun, so welcome to Killerspin House, Chicago’s very own primo table tennis facility, now open in Downtown.
This is Killerspin’s flagship joint. They make world-class ping-pong equipment for pros, and will be the first to tell you about the benefits of UnPlugNPlay.
Spoiler alert: ping-pong makes you productive. And more creative.
A $60 monthly “Visa” gives you access to top-tier equipment and unlimited play, with a +1 once a week. Or you can just zen out and practice your stroke with the Killerspin Throw Robot, which can serve up to 105 balls per minute.
Now get out of here. It’s break time.
