Ping Pong is back at Tonari Gumi!

Starting in September of this year, Tonari Gumi’s Table Tennis Club began once again.  With a small group of ardent players, the sounds of balls being batted back and forth and cries of victory and defeat can be heard again at Tonari Gumi.  Besides being great exercise, it’s also a great way to meet new friends.  We need more players, however, and if you’re interested please register at Tonari Gumi.  Drop-in’s are welcome and you can join at anytime.

See you there!
