The SPIN started in 2007 with a series of legendary ping pong parties in the Tribeca loft hosted by Jonathan Bricklin and Franck Raharinosy. Later in 2009, SPiN opened its flagship location in New York City.
Known for ‘Naked Ping-Pong’, their Friday night party, quickly grew from a few friends to a few hundred – from artists and models to bankers and hipsters to celebrities and ping pong professionals. The diverse crowd fueled by the fun and vibrant energy of the space is still the essence of SPiN today.
Spin has seen the growth of an iconic ping pong culture, lifestyle and movement, which has redefined the game to know no boundaries. It’s is about having fun, not taking life too seriously, making connections and embracing contradictions. It’s a sport that connects people regardless of age, gender or background.
