Scranton Area Table Tennis Association
Club Member of USATT (usatt.org)
Our location is in Northeast Scranton Intermediate School in Scranton PA.
We meet every Tuesday 6-9pm in the school gym which is located in the back of the building. You must access the gym through the backdoor in the loading dock area. You can park your car around the area in the evening. The school is adjacent to the Commonwealth Medical College which is a set of new, modern, brownish buildings. One way to get there is to turn right into a small alley past the Medical College from Pine Street. You will see the loading dock and the door leading to the gym within 100 ft or so. If you are coming from Gibson Ave. side, just drive around the building to the back, there is a small alley around the building. You can always park off-street and walk to the gym!
[Since we are strictly tied to school schedule, check School Calendar to see if we are open.]
- It is community based non-profit family friendly club that originally started as Penn State Worthington Scranton Table Tennis Club. All ages, all skills are welcome! However, minors MUST be accompanied by an adult/guardian at all times.
- Absolutely NO FOUL LANGUAGE or loud noise. We have a number of children playing with us.
- We provide coaching to anyone interested in learning the basics of the game of table tennis.
- The club will be closed when the school is not in session.
- Balls are expensive, when you put them away, put them in the crate with balls and do not mix them with net sets, especially the metals ones which can break them.
- Whenever there are more than 3 players waiting to play, following rules shall apply:
1. Matches shall be played best of 3 games.
2. No player shall play more than two matches in row.
3. If you want to play at a specific table, put down your paddle next to the table to signal your preference.
4. One table shall be reserved for training purposes (e.g. multi-ball training)
5. Balls are expensive, please use no more than TWO club balls per table at any time.
6. Playing doubles is highly encouraged, but not required.
7. Do not place table tennis balls in the same crate with the table tennis nets: metal parts of the nets can damage the fragile balls.
