Welcome to PingPod’s summer camps for 6 to 14-year-olds! The programs are designed to promote sportsmanship and teamwork, while learning how to play table tennis and develop new friendships in a fun, safe, and supportive environment. The camps are hosted in our new, beautiful facilities in Manhattan and Brooklyn and are run by experienced and energetic coaches who are Safe Sport and first-aid certified.

Podlings have fun and develop confidence as they learn the basics of table tennis and sports etiquette. The program incorporates supportive instruction with play, games, arts and crafts, and weekly specials.

Podsters: 10 to 14 year-olds
Both beginners and more advanced players will receive personalized instruction from our professional coaches.

The kids had so much fun! Christopher shared that the best part of the camp was learning what he was allowed vs not allowed to do in a game. He has casually played for a couple of years and never really new the rules. Christopher actually lost to his older brother during the scrimmages at the end and was a bit emotional about it. I loved that Coach David was able to talk to Christopher and calm him down. He managed the situation really well as it sometimes can be difficult dealing with competitive brothers. Thank you for being so kind to me and my boys and giving them the opportunity to formally learn more about table tennis (we just learned that’s the official name 😊)! We will definitely be back when we visit NYC again.
