Downtown: Free ping pong celebrates the U.S. Table Tennis Open

As I first told you last September, the U.S. Table Tennis Open is this weekend at the Frontier Airlines Center.  More than 700 men, women and juniors from around the world will compete on 100 tables.

As a tie-in to this big event, VISIT Milwaukee has teamed up with Chicago-based manufacturer of ping pong tables, Killerspin, to place eight tables around greater Downtown Milwaukee for free public use.

You got game?  Tables will be set up throughout the summer at the following locations:

·         Chase Bank Plaza

·         General Mitchell International Airport

·         Harley-Davidson Museum

·         Horny Goat Hideaway

·         InterContinental Milwaukee Hotel

·         Lakefront Brewery

·         Mitchell Park Conservatory

·         Milwaukee Art Museum (July only)

According to VISIT Milwaukee President & CEO Paul Upchurch, "Milwaukee in the summertime is all about having fun, and we felt that the tables would be another way for the fun to continue all summer long for visitors and residents."
