Host a Party at Ping Pong

For your next corporate outing or celebration, take it outside for some fresh air and an invigorating game of Ping Pong. Play for fun–we can offer instruction. Set up an intra-office tournament, from styles ranging from singles matches, to mixed doubles, to round robins. Or, play Around the World-style, and get the whole group involved. Whatever way you choose to play, a party at The Tables is a great way to build team spirit. If you’d like refreshments, we’re happy to connect you to our excellent onsite food kiosks.

Afterward, celebrate with drinks and no-wait entry at Manhattan's hottest after-work scenes, The Bryant Park Café and The Southwest Porch.

If you need more information, or have special requests for your party, we are here to help. Email your inquiries to Maureen Devenny (
