What is SPIN?

Frequently Asked Questions

SPIN is THE original ping pong social club. Our flagship is located in New York City, where our story began almost ten years ago.

(Ask us about Naked Ping Pong. Don’t worry, it’s not weird.)

We now have eight (and counting) venues throughout the US and Canada. All of our venues center around ping pong and offer a minimum of twelve courts, in addition to a full-service restaurant and craft cocktail bar.

Plus, we have the coolest and friendliest staff in the biz.


We’ve got you covered.
  • Is membership required?
    Absolutely not! We do offer an awesome monthly membership with tons of benefits for all of our devoted ping pongers to connect with other like minded individuals, but membership is never required for entry. We also have weekly tournaments and a seasonal Social League for those who want just a little bit of commitment. If none of those options are for you, just come by during our regular business hours and hop on a table. No strings attached. (See venue page for pricing and advanced reservations.) For more info on our memberships and tournaments, give us a call at 212-982-8802.
  • Can I just walk into a venue?
    Ever just stumble upon a great local bar down the street? You walk in and feel at home? Well that’s SPIN and we are open to walk-ins during our normal business hours. Bring a friend or 20 and let us give you the best ping pong experience of your life.
  • Can I book in advance?
    Want to skip the waitlist on Friday with your friends? We've got you covered. SPIN offers advanced reservations every day throughout the week. Weekday reservations open up 2 days prior, while weekends are available for booking a week in advance. Check your location page to reserve a table online or give us a call and we can take it from there!
  • Do you offer lessons?
    We support anyone’s decision to up their ping pong game and have professionals on hand to give you one-on-one instruction guaranteed to take your skills to the next level. Please reach out to your local club for further information.
  • Do I need to bring my own paddle?
    Nope! We provide STIGA brand paddles for all of our guests. If you're looking to up your game, ask our front desk about using one of our PRO paddles for a little extra oomf. Of course if you have your own paddle, you are more than welcome to bring it with you!
  • I have a friend that doesn’t play, should I still come?
    Ever see world class ping pong champions battle it out in person? We have and called it Players’ Night! Every Friday at 10PM, we put on a free communal ping pong show, where you can watch or participate, but one thing's for certain, you are bound to meet some new friends and have a marvelous time. Come see for yourself. No experience necessary.
  • What is SPIN's dress code?
    Our first rule of dress code is there is no dress code. Well, that's not entirely true, please keep those feet inside your shoes, but all other outfits, costumes and 90's era attire are profusely encouraged and rewarded.
  • Am I allowed to bring my kids?
    We love kids. Kids love ping pong, and they are welcomed at any location before 9PM. Want to host a one of kind, birthday party for your kiddo that will give you a lifetime of happy memories? Yeah, we do that too!
  • What time does your kitchen close?
    Typically, our kitchen closes 1 hour before the venue, so if you are looking for a late-night snack, we've got you covered. Please check the location page for details about venue hours.
  • Do you offer options for vegans?
    Vegan in the group? SPIN offers vegan and gluten-free options at each of our locations! Check out our city specific, mouth-watering menus to plan your visit.
