Please bring table tennis shoes or sneakers. Black-soled shoes or shoes that you have worn outdoors are not permitted on the wood playing floor.
Please bring your own racket and ball. (The club has a few very old rackets at the desk that we can lend you if they are not already in use.)
Please sign in when you arrive (regardless of whether you owe money).
Please pay before you play if you are not a member or if your membership has expired. This applies to everyone, including players taking lessons or playing outside the official hours. The Boston Table Tennis Club accepts only cash and checks; no credit cards.
The refreshments in the refrigerator are for your convenience. The prices are listed on the refrigerator door. Please place the cash payment in the pink box on the desk.
Please act courteously to others while in the Boston Table Tennis Club.
Please do not smoke or bring alcoholic beverages into the Boston Table Tennis Club.
No food is permitted on the wood floor. Drinks on the wood floor are acceptable only if they are in spill-proof containers.
Wet or damp towels to clean your shoes are not permitted directly on the wood floor. Place them on a barrier (e.g., a plastic bag or dry towel) while you are playing.
If you need to change clothes before you play, please do so in the restroom.
You do not need to bring a partner. Most players come by themselves and play with whomever shows up.
