King Pong recreation venue opens in Middletown


MIDDLETOWN, Conn. (WTNH) — A brand new recreation venue has opened in Middletown: King Pong welcomed guests for the first time Saturday.

The 1,300 square-foot space offers ping pong and billiards for people who want to play. You can rent table time by the hour. King Pong was set to open last summer, but that opening was pushed back due to the pandemic.

You can rent a table by the hour.

Tony Loomis of King Pong tells News 8, “You can come here and have a party, you can rent the whole place out to have a party. Or, we have leagues that are going to be starting soon, so you can come and play in a ping pong league. Or, you can just come and play and practice and have a good time…We’ve tried to set up a really safe place for everyone, where we clean all the equipment, we have the air purifiers running. Just something for people to get out and have a good time again.”

Managers tell us soon, members will be able to access the facility 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
