Detroit loves ping-pong. So why aren't there any ping pong clubs in the city? Don't worry, Drive Table Tennis Social Club is going to solve that problem. We're on a mission to open Detroit's only ping pong social club where people can hang with your friends, grab a bite to eat, listen to the coolest DJs in Detroit, and be a ping-pong rock star!
Drive has hosted various pop-up events, all with overwhelming success(check out the pics and video). We believe the time is now to open a fully functional, daily operational table tennis club for all of the ping pong enthusiasts and social pioneers! We also believe that ping-pong can change the world. Every table is connected to a local non-profit, so every time you play at Drive you will financially support important causes in your local community. How cool is that?
We have an amazing opportunity to renovate a space right in the heart of Downtown Detroit at 1441 Woodward and make it the coolest social venue in the city walking distance from Campus Martius, Fox Theatre, and Detroit Tigers Comerica Park! It will include a stage for local bands to play, comfortable seating to watch the action, and 8 olympic quality ping pong tables (the best in the industry). Visitors can play pick up games or become members and have unlimited access, free reservations, and other perks.
Drive Tabe Tennis Social Club is set to have its grand opening on Friday, January 18, 2013. Your Kickstarter pledge will contribute to the design, insurance, and utilities associated with getting this community gathering spot up and running. Our goal is to raise $5,500 dollars in 30 days. Help us bring ping pong to Detroit.
