Detroit pingpong fans hurt by the closure of Drive Table Tennis Social Club downtown now have a new place to turn: Bert's Warehouse in Eastern Market.
That's where Crain's reports a new table tennis collective is opening, with rentals available from Tuesday through Thursday.
Pong Detroit LLC took up residency last week at Bert's Warehouse in Detroit's Eastern Market, where it has set up a collective combining food and drinks with table tennis.
The company, started by Mal Lang, offers table rentals and supplies balls and paddles, Lang said in an email. Hours are 5-11 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday. Cost to rent a table is $10 per hour 5-7 p.m. and $15 per hour 7-11 p.m.
Bert's full food and beverage menu will be offered to pingpong players, Lang said.
