Table tennis or Ping-Pong can be traced back to the 1880’s, and it has been an Olympic sport since 1988. It is played by people of all ages and can provide a healthy workout and improved hand eye coordination. The sport is active, fast paced and exciting. Unfortunately, there are a limited number of places to play in New Orleans with adequate space, quality equipment and plenty of tables.
Manhattan Athletic Club is proud to be the only Westbank location cited by the New Orleans Table Tennis Club as a Top Ten place to play in the greater New Orleans region. We have one competition table always setup for play in the recreation area, and we have 2 more competition tables folded and ready for use upon request—simply ask the front desk about setup options for these additional tables.
Table tennis is governed by the International Table Tennis Federation, a worldwide organization founded in 1926. The table tennis official rules are specified in the ITTF handbook, viewable here:
