Free ping pong in honor of US Table Tennis Open

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Milwaukee officials are celebrating the U.S. Table Tennis Open being in town by placing eight free ping pong tables around the city.

The city's tourism promoter, VISIT Milwaukee, says they teamed up with the Chicago-based manufacturer of ping pong tables, Killerspin, to place eight tables around town.

The locations include General Mitchell International Airport, Harley-Davidson Museum, Milwaukee Art Museum, InterContinental Milwaukee Hotel, Mitchell Park Conservatory, Chase Bank Plaza, Horny Goat Hideaway and Lakefront Brewery.

The U.S. Table Tennis Open runs through Monday in Milwaukee.

The tables are up already and will remain so until Sept. 11 with the exception of the one at Milwaukee Art Museum, which will only be up in July.
