    Would be nice if we know how many table are there in these places. Too few a table would be a big problem driving all the way down there and just wait for your turn.

    Thanks,

    I would like to know if there is a public-access table-tennis center in the vicinity of Fallbrook/Bonsall. I am a new resident of Fallbrook (moved here 6 months ago) and have been playing table tennis since boyhood. I would say I am a proficient player.

    Thanks for a response.

    Hi John:

    I personally don’t know of anything near Fallbrook, Bonsall. There are several excellent players in Vista. One of them being Tom Alt (760) 598-7027. He has a table at his house. You might want to give him a call.

    Repeat of Ivan’s question : It would be great to have a place to play in north county near Oceanside/Vista/San Marcos/Escondido. Anyone know of any? I’ve searched and no luck so far. None of the community centers here have TT tables, I think..

    So I showed up at Carmel Valley Rec Center every day last week and no one showed up. I guess no one plays there! Contact me if anyone wants to play there.

    Hello Ivan, I just moved to San Diego. I know your comment was made a year earlier. Wonder if you are still interested in playing at Carmel Valley Rec Center.

    My rating is around 525, email me if you want to play at anywhere in SD or Del Mar: sandiegokevinross@gmail.com.

    @Jerry re place to play in College area: SDSU (Aztec Recreation Center) — when I was a student there ~2005 there was at least one table that would often be set up outdoors, just outside the bottom level of ARC (where the bowling alley is). I didn’t play then so I don’t know the details but it seemed to be free to use, maybe whenever ARC was open and maybe check-outable only by ARC members.

    Also, a bit west of there, Triple Crown Pub in Normal Heights has 2 tables (one inside, one outside), no cost to play.

    Does anyone know of any table tennis teams for youth near mira mesa? Looking to sign my son up as he loves to play

  23. November 13th, 2012 at 2:16am | #23

    Adams Avenue Rec Center has one table. My boyfriend and I have been playing there quite frequently lately. Helps to bring your own gear. The center is open noon – 8pm weekdays, but is mostly an after-school facility, so best for people like us who work nights and can play noon-2pm, before the kids get off of school. Mark is the attendant and loves to play, so it’s nice to take a partner and rotate him into the action.

    My son -12- also wants to have somebody to play with. We are in Carmel Valley. Do you want to arrange some time to let them play together. We can go to Carmel valley community center, Miramesa or Ocean air park.

    Hi Pete:
    I think there are some tables at the RB Rec center.
    You can drive down to our club anytime and get a pick-up game. Just challenge a table with players around your level.
    Or drop me a line before driving down and I’ll be there to play you.
