Ping Pong In The Park
Triple R Events: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle presents free ping pong in Astoria Park on August 15th from 1:00 - 7:00 pm during the 2nd Annual Astoria Water Walk organized by the Astoria Park Alliance.
Three ping pong tables will be available for anyone to use, free of charge. Tables are constructed by Build It Green! NYC, a building materials salvage warehouse located in Astoria.
This is the second year that Triple R and Build It Green! NYC have partnered to participate in the Astoria Water Walks, a temporary street closure of Shore Boulevard between Ditmars Blvd and Hoyt Ave S. organized by the Astoria Park Alliance.
Last year, over 120 people participated in Ping Pong in the Park. Avid players to first timers played ping pong with their friends and family - or were matched up with people waiting to play. Most games lasted twenty minutes, and there was often a wait list of those wanting to try a free game. Triple R Events provides ping pong paddles and ping pong balls.
