I attended a client party tonight at Spin, a ping pong social club in Toronto. Yes, there actually is such a thing.
Aside from having some fun playing table tennis throughout the night, it turns out that everything goes under the black light at 10:00pm.
We didn’t get to play for long since out time on the tables had techincally run out an hour earlier, but the bit we did play was pretty damned fun. If you’ve ever bowled under black light you know the feeling. Everything becomes disembodied, and all you can focus on are the relevant pieces.
It makes it both easier (being able to focus on the ball) and harder (not being able to judge the table) at the same time.
If it weren’t so expensive, I’d love to get a bunch of people together and run a tournament some time.
