There’s a ping pong table now located on City Hall’s Red Room – the space just off the plaza level that has the water jet fountain. About a year ago, I was touring Northeastern University’s new Seattle campus when I came across one of their ping pong tables. I began playing and had such a good time I thought it would be worth sharing with the public. I asked the University to consider selling the City one of their ping pong tables for a dollar. And, to my surprise, they said yes!
The idea was to allow anyone to play and now they can by signing up at the security desk on the main floor of City Hall. They’ll even be provided paddles and balls if needed.
