Ping pong is making serious inroads this season. Last year, the club Spin was opened by enthusiast Susan Sarandon on Park Avenue South. Then, Christopher Coleman decorated his Kips Bay Showhouse room as a mod lounge with a very pricey custom steel ping pong table. Pong fever continues. Long popular as a basement or garage game, and frat pastime, pong is having its day. Why not turn your basement into an updated game room, so you can get in on the action? The game is becoming hotter and more stylish, and with the accessories here you can bring your A game.

Another custom option is the limited edition Malibu Ping Pong Table from James Perse. This table is well suited to the beer drinkers. With the black finish as opposed to the classic green, spilled beers are less likely to create a stressful situation.

Jonathan Adler just came out with the new spring collection that had graphic geometric needlepoint covers for your favorite racquet sports--tennis and ping pong.

The creative gals over at Alice Supply Company upped the ante with their nautical red,white and blue racquet set.
