So you now want to test your skills against other people. Or you simply want someone to practice with. In any case, the best alternative to randomly calling up people and seeing if they are interested is finding a play where people play table tennis regularly. If you can get in and catch the attention of a few people, then you will be set. But with the current situation of table tennis in the States, this can get a little tricky, depending on where you live.
The first place to start would be the USATT website. It lists the major clubs within the 50 states of USA. But even if you don't find what you are looking for there, don't despair. That list contains only a fraction of the actual table tennis facilities in the USA.
If you didn't find a suitable club in the USATT list, try these likely hot spots:
City Directories may have information on possible sites, as well as the Chamber of Commerce. Or try trolling for mentions of table tennis in various conversations in the city.
Despite all of your best efforts, finding a suitable place to play can fail often. But one must realize all the other existing clubs also began from the mere whirlwinds of dust floating through the ethers. The next section, spreading table tennis, talks about how you can form your own playing organization, so others in the same predicament as yours can be helped and inspired.
