Newport Senior Activities Center Announces
Ping Pong Club with Master Pong
Newport’s 60+ Center wants you to know the Ping Pong Club, that originated at the Newport Senior Activity Center, now meets at Yaquina View Elementary School gym, Wednesdays & Saturdays from 5:30-8:30 PM. This club has over 10 regular players, but always leaves one table open for new players. Everyone is welcome, at all experience levels. The club provides extra paddles for practice play, and playing is free for all players. Comfortable clothing and tennis shoes are recommended.
Master Pong, aka Don, the club’s organizer and informal teacher/coach, started the club over 6 years ago. It was first housed at the NSAC, but outgrew the playing space and relocated to the Yaquina Elementary School gym. The school is located across from the Elks Club, heading west off Hwy. 20. You may call Master Pong with questions for more information about this great physical, mental, and social activity at 541-961-8282.
