FORT LEE, NJ – Building on the success of its five New York locations, PingPod, a 24/7 on-demand table tennis concept, is expanding into New Jersey, signing a lease for a space in The Shops at Hudson Lights in Fort Lee, the company said.
PingPod Fort Lee will feature four ping pong tables in its 1,900 square foot space and add recreational activity to the mall for people of all ages.
“Hudson Lights gives PingPod a perfect fit for our first non-urban location,” said co-founder David Silberman. “PingPod’s appeal ranges from casual gamers looking for social gaming to expert gamers training for their upcoming tournaments.”
Scheduled to open in early 2023, the space will feature four tables that can be reserved online via the website or a smartphone app. The venue can also be a space for private parties, children’s classes and expert coaching.
Silberman launched PingPod in 2020, partnering Ernesto Ebuen, a former #1 ranked coach/player in the US, and Max Kogler, the former COO/CFO of Super Soccer Stars.
PingPod is a network of technology-packed table tennis “pods” – each a street-level retail space with one to six tables available for rent in 30-minute increments. The pods, which are open 24/7, also feature a highlight reel system that lets players capture their biggest hits (or misses), the company said.
