PongPlanet programs are designed to ensure a constant progression for both competitive and recreational players.  There are leagues, tournaments, and open play hours.  This is an ideal location for serious players, fitness enthusiasts, serious players, and also for those that just enjoy the social aspects of the sport.  The private coaching lessons and available robot can help all those who wish to improve.  And for those who are interested in fun, PongPlanet can facilitate birthday parties, camps, and corporate events that are ping pong themed.

PongPlanet has its roots in the Palo Alto Table Tennis Club which was the premier table tennis club in the Bay Area for decades.  The Palo Alto club helped produce national level talents including Olympians Ariel Hsing and Lily Zhang.
