Pop-Up Ping-Pong Party 

At Rhythmix Cultural Works.

Linda Jacobson and Lauren Hewitt believe in the restorative healing power and brain-healthy benefits of Ping-Pong. They’re hoping to spread those benefits in a series of free pop-up Ping-Pong parties throughout the East Bay, the first of which will be held at Rhythmix Cultural Works (2513 Blanding Ave., in Alameda) on Sunday. The duo is also scouting locations in Oakland to open up the very first PaddleSnap Urban Resort. Based on renderings and the information provided on the group’s website, the resort will be a lounge of sorts, equipped with ping-pong tables and couches, with “nutritious nibbles, brews, and beverages.” Jacobson said she’s hoping to move into a space by the end of 2016 but said they’re still looking for investors to finance the endeavor. Jacobson said that right now, she and Hewitt are personally funding the future resort’s development, including buying the ping-pong tables for the pop-up parties. So far, however, the public response to the pop-ups has been overwhelming, Jacobson said. The event is free, but an RSVP is required. Visit Rhythmix.org for a link to the event page.
