  1. I’m probably a mid range player. Looking to join up with others to play… Is it hard to get on a table here? What skill level is everyone at? A bunch of pros looking for fresh meat?

    1. Hi Brandon,

      No it’s not hard to get a table. It’s open play, and we typically do a simple “challenge” where you place your paddle down next to a table to claim a match against the winner. Everybody is friendly, so it’s not something that you need to worry about.

      There are skill levels of all kinds. I think you’ll have fun. There should be some people at your level you can compete with, and others you can play with to get a feel for what this game is like when you advance through the levels. 🙂

      Let me know if you have any questions or concerns about that. Thanks!

  2. I’d like to join the league, but will be gone several weeks (particularly in July). Is that a problem if I’m not there?

    1. No, it’s no problem if you can’t attend any given week. You just won’t get any results for that week, of course.

    1. We’ve had about 30 players showing up, but most of them are playing in the league right now, and the majority of the tables are occupied by the league. You can still sign up for the league, though, if you want to get in on the action!

    1. Yes, but it may be at the KC (Grandview) location instead of Independence. Would that affect your ability to attend?
