“Hi there. I’m a single, 31-year-old woman looking for a man to play ping pong and drink beer with. I am particularly interested in men who believe they might win. If you have no backhand or don’t know the rules, I will not find this cute. I carry around my own paddle. I’m 5’9, 135, blond, fast and long-limbed, which means I can return what you were sure would be a winner. If you are up for this challenge, drop me an email and let me know where you like to play in New York City. We can meet there. Loser pays for beer.”
My friend Ashley Harrell made this Craigslist post in order to learn more about the NYC ping pong scene for her latest article.
Within 6 hours she had 40 offers for a ping pong date.
