We all have that friend who’s constantly planning tournaments. They require matching tees, a Google Doc for outlining the bracket, and at least 164 reminder emails. So when that friend gets the itch again, cut their WiFi and take them to SPIN - it’s gigantic and has more ping pong tables than any other spot in town. There’s also a bar in case you lose in the first round of the tournament or you swear you play better after a drink or two.
