Susan Sarandon Takes SPiN from New York to Los Angeles and Milwaukee


Last year actress Susan Sarandon took  on a new role – that of investor in SPiN ,  a Ping-Pong parlor that  opened its doors in New York.

The Thelma & Louise star, who discovered the game through her son Miles and helped launch the place in NYC ,  is very excited about her passion for ping pong.

 “I started finding out that there was this subculture of Ping-Pong and all these people that you wouldn’t expect are serious about it,” she said. “I just worked with Ed Norton, and he’s so committed that he trained in China while he was shooting a film there.”

SPiN Hollywood  at Mondrian will mark one of SPiN’s first expansions outside of New York, bringing two signature ping pong tables to the ADCB lounge, just steps from the famed Sunset Strip. SPiN hotel guests and visitors will enjoy tournaments, celebrity events and even cocktails and food over a casual game of table tennis.

What’s next for SPiN?  Chicago? – Well, close.  Milwaukee!  Yes, get ready, Milwaukee. Table tennis is coming to the Historic Third Ward this summer.

Spin Milwaukee, 233 E. Chicago St. (across from Rubin’s), will open later this summer and will feature 16,500 square feet of table tennis (12 tables and one center court), bars, a restaurant, pro shop and private event rooms. It’s not your father’s tennis club. This is custom designed, Olympic-caliber pingpong and entertainment.
