      Table Tennis Tokyo

      Hello,

      I am planing to go to Tokyo for a couple of days mid january, so I just wanted to ask, if someone knows maybe a good place to play in Tokyo.
      Best would be a place with some "better" players.

      Cheers!

      Will be in tokyo probably for 3 months, but only from july. I would also love to learn about such places.
      There is this website: https://www.meetup.com/Tokyo-Table-Tennis/ but it seems that mostly beginners go there. I might be mistaken, does anyone have any experience with this group ?

      i already posted an answer in another thread

      https://www.tabletennisdaily.co.uk/f...ighlight=tokyo

      the meetup is filled with beginners only and they sometimes gather in non-central places

      about that Minato Sports Center. If someone goes alone it is possible to find someone else who went there alone to play table tennis or people usually go in groups and play inside those groups ?

      there are some rush hours like wednesday and thursday evenings, or weekend afternoons.

      during rush hours, there is usually some guy responsible for the TT room and they would make sure to arrange things orderly and would find a partner for you or even play with you. Tables are booked for 1 hour on the hour, and when its very crowded you have to put your name at say 6:30 to play from 7 to 8 and if there are too many people there is a lottery. those losing at the lottery would have priority from 8 to 9. its better to come with a partner during those rush hours.

      Outside rush hours, well it means there are free tables, if there is someone else not playing you can ask him, there might still be someone responsible for the whole room which might play with you.

      There are also some empty hours where few people show up like Sunday or Monday evenings. or early weekday afternoons...

      Maybe Schlafftablette will get someone to make a Japanese Foreign TT Association with a FB page for situations like his.

      There are a lot of shops in tokyo with table tennis equipment (including butterly). Just type table tennis (takkyuu in japanese) in google maps and search tokyo area. I remember there was one shop 1-2 minutes from yoyogi station, but it is very likelly You will find something near Your location

      Thanks for the great information! Especially to teach me the word for ping pong in Japanese. Now I can probably search for places everywhere in the country.

      I love Japan
      , I go whenever it is possible.

      Give me a shoutout next time you're in the Kansai area! Japanese Foreign TT Association sounds like a great idea, who's in?

      HI @Takkyu_wa_inochi san, I am travelling to Japan in June with my wife and son. We will be in Tokyo from 17-20 June and staying around Ginza.

      Do you know where can I find a club to play 1 or 2 hours together with my son? Hope to have some drill trainings and sparring sessions.
