Hi all,

I'm thinking about moving back to the cold, cold north suburbs of Chicago but during winter time I need a place to play table tennis. I surveyed the community and senior centers but the only obvious place is Weber Community center in Skokie which has a club that meets during certain times of the week as well as a first come, first served table in the lobby (when I use to go there were two such tables). 

Does anyone know of another venue? Here in Stamford, I go to the senior center and UCONN when my wife and I feel like we want to play a bit. I'm hope there is a similar venue in Northern Chicago in around Evanston and such. Thanks for the help!

Play and Spin (google it) also lets you rent tables; you should call since they are not always availables (they fold the tables for birthday parties, etc) and and should not go there without a partner.

Weber is the only place I know; 13 tables in a basketball court.
Stronger players come at the evening sessions; mornings have maybe one third seniors and/or begginers.

Northwestern U. has some (good) tables in their gym but I never saw them un-folded. BTW, not so cold this year.

Thanks much. I knew that NWU has a table tennis club but I don't know if it is accessible to non-students. I doubt it. 

I'm going to check out Play and Spin. Appreciate the tip!
