“[Will] and I would religiously compete against each other [in ping pong] to the point where we wondered ‘why not just start a club at school?'” founder of the Ping Pong Club, Alex Khammar ’19, said.

Khammar went on to detail some of the Club’s future events.

“We plan on having a few running tournaments during the second semester,” Khammar said.

Founding member Will Burgos ’19 believes that the ping pong tables can serve as a way to destress students and give them something to look forward to.

Paddles and balls can be checked out during announcements or lunch in Quinton Davis’ room. If students can keep the checkout system organized and follow the guidelines, which includes ll equipment put away before the next class begins, the Club may extend play time to the 15-minute break.
