There is no shame in losing a point to Ernesto Ebuen. He was a six-time national table tennis champion in the Phillipines.

When he came to the United States in 2007, he eventually became the top-ranked player in the country.

“I came to the U.S., to New York, with nothing, just with my table tennis skills, and used table tennis to make a living, and now open my dream table tennis place,” said Ebuen, who is the co-founder of PINGPOD along with partners David Silberman and Max Kogler.

They got together in 2019 to mix table tennis with technology. It’s table tennis on-demand 24 hours a day. There are two locations in Manhattan, with Queens and Brooklyn locations on the way.

“We call it an autonomous concept: there are no employees working here on site, so you make a reservation, you show up, you play, you walk out, and we have a great security system to make sure everyone is following protocol and keeping the place safe,” Silberman explained.
