The Charlotte Table Tennis Club meets at First United Methodist Church in uptown Charlotte. We use the door on the north side of the church toward the back, between the small surface parking lot and the playground.
Preferred parking is in the 525 N Tryon garage – the entrance is on 9th street. Park in any space that is not numbered or does not say Reserved. Bring the ticket in to validate at the scanner on the 2nd floor. Use the elevator that says Child Development Center and Church Offices. Go up to level ⭐️ P and follow the ping pong paddle signs. Tickets often need to be scanned twice – make sure you get the green message and not the red message after scanning.
There is a small surface lot with a very limited number (10) spaces. This lot is NOT available before 6 PM on weekdays or before 1 PM on Sundays. Park ONLY in the designated spaces and DO NOT double park.
Put a message in the WhatsApp group to ask someone to open the door.
Club members with subscription memberships receive a key fob which will unlock the door.
Guest fee is $10 a day, membership is $50 a month, with discounts for children, seniors over 65, and longer term memberships – more information and links for payment are on this website.
