In light of the COVID-19 threat across the city and the world, we have been working hard to provide a safe and yet convenient playing environment to all of you. First and foremost, please follow New York City guidelines as closely as possible. They can be found here. If you still feel the urge to play table tennis with your friends in a contained/small-scale environment please follow PINGPOD-specific guidelines below.

A maximum number of 5 people are allowed for each reservation during these times.
Each pod has a bathroom and a non-contact antibacterial soap dispenser. Please wash your hands frequently but especially after entry in accordance with CDC guidelines.
While table tennis is naturally a non-contact sport, keep your distance from other players, e.g. switch sides on the opposite side of the table OR better yet, don’t switch sides if you can.
This should be done with your elbow and not your hand.
Please wash your hands frequently but especially after entry in accordance with CDC guidelines.
Each pod is equipped with disinfecting wipes next to the table – please wipe down the table during your session and when your session is finished.

The max number of people at one table should not exceed 5 in total during this time. This excludes employees who might enter the pod sporadically who are instructed to keep their distance.
We clean and rotate balls regularly to minimize contagion through the balls. We also disinfect the balls on rotation.
The pod is professionally cleaned on a regular basis; this means disinfecting all surfaces, vacuuming, dusting, bathroom etc.
We provide Clorox disinfecting wipes and hand sanitizer for anybody to use.
Each table inside each pod is equipped with at least one HEPA filter unit which provides ongoing air filtration. We also consistently cycle fresh air through our pods.
While we believe that exercise and fitness are essential for physical and mental health, especially during these times, we strongly recommend that you operate with caution and adhere to all guidelines provided.
Any urgent questions during your reservation – please call 212-535-3553.
