The only place for Table Tennis I know is Sports City in Deira near Etisalat or Dubai Bowling Centre. None of them have a membership charges just pay by hourly like 10 or 15 dhs.

There are other places.. like in burdubai, musella tower.. u may find the the room space to be a bit small if u both r good players. but for avg players.. its good enought..

Al Nasr Sports Club has a table tennis section, I think that is not too far for you.

Check their site in the sport clubscolumn.

If you find out about more clubs or maybe people just forming a group without being official, please let me know.
Than I can add them to the list for others looking for the same.

Ill check out about Sports City nr Etisalat. The one at the Bowling Centre is not all that good but something better than nothin. Only trouble the TT ball falls out onto the Bowling alley down!!

Astrid, It wud be a good idea to start an unofficial club just so that all of us who have an interest in the game-not pro' can sometimes get 2gether and have a few games. I havent played since I landed in Dxb 8yrs.... And im just an OK player just keen to play again.

Any inputs/ suggestions ??

Hello guys,

I've been looking to play table tennis ever since I moved to Dubai but I just couldn't find anyone to play with. I can manage to come to Dubai Bowling (its the one near Century Mall, right?). I live in Muhisnah. Maybe we should meet up and hit some balls together.

I am a very average player.

Hi Boricol,

I haven't played ping pong in about 5 years myself. I really need this exercise coz I've been laying around on my A$$ for too long, its about time I got myself into some healthy activity.

My number is 050-1381501, give me a buzz and we'll definitely meet up next Friday.
Cheers

Hello Yasr,

We met up yesterday and played at Dubai Bowling Center. It was the most fun and fat burning activity I have done, since I landed in Dubai.

We've decided to play at least 2 times a week once on a weekend (Friday/Saturday) and once on a weekday. For now, the coming Saturday is a confirmed date, however, if we meet up anyday on the weekend, we'll let you know.

You can contact me on 050-1381501

Cheers
Nabeel

I expect at least 4 of us to show up. Myself, Sohaib, Raju and Yaser. Brian, I know you work on Saturday's and I am sorry that you might not be able to make it. However, we will definitely decide to meet up at least one weekday apart from a weekend, so we'll definitely meet up soon.

Cheers guys, looking forward to meeting all of you.
