Ping Pong Table for the Office by Jessica Hodges
I want one. I know it seems like a distraction and that it is probably unnecessary but it’s not. It’s so fun! And I promise I wouldn’t waste time at work. Only time after work or maybe during lunch. We had a ping pong tournament at my last job that got pretty competitive. The winner even got free movie tickets! I won the consolation bracket but I had the strange feeling that the guy wasn’t too happy and I never got my movie tickets…lame right? So now I’m pushing for it at Shoplet Headquarters. Why have a conference table that is just a conference table? Objects with a dual purpose are always much cooler.
Strange Opponents(Make new heads that look like some of the employees at your company! What a fun way to release anger, i mean practice.)
Ping Meets Pong(Meet to play and dine.)
Meet at the Ping Pong Table (Be willing to sacrifice comfort to get that table.)
Mirror Ping Pong Table(Wouldn’t this be a great conversation piece for new clients coming in your office? Just don’t get mad during game and slam your paddle or fists the table. That would be really bad news.)
Any Table a Ping Pong Table (All you need is the cloth and the net. And preferably a bigger table.)
Ping Ping Door(Make your own or buy one. All you need is a door that you can cut out, enough space, and to a building a folding ping pong table. Kind of small, but really cool looking)
Okay so lets talk about options. Most likely your company won’t spring for a brand new ping pong table (if they will, great!!) Plan B: get a new table that will be ping pong compatible. Office furniture can be pretty expensive, but we have lots of tables on sale at Shoplet.com!
You could get a Folding Table, perfect for meetings, lunches, parties, and umm ping pong.
Or go for the classy look of wood conference room tables.
