Dear PoP – “I wonder why there are no ping pong tables in DC”

“Dear PoP,

Why is there such a dearth of table tennis/ping pong (is there a difference between those two terms?) options in DC?
I only know of Comet Ping Pong…do you happen to know of any other ping pong tables in the district?”

A question dear to my heart. I can only think it’s a pain to chase the balls around and takes up too much space for most bars. According to wikipedia table tennis and ping pong are synonymous. And an Olympic sport…

Many were hopeful that Ping Pong Dim Sum in Chinatown would offer an alternative but aside from good food, no sports are offered.

Back in January we learned that the Rock and Roll Hotel on H St, NE offered ping pong Monday nights. Anyone know if that is still going on? Where do you guys play ping pong?
