Ping Pong Enthusiasts Promote Game’s Coolness

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Ping Pong players are totally cool.

Franck Raharinosy and his best friends Bill Mack and Jonathan Bricklin founded the Naked Ping Pong Club to promote the coolness of the nerdy sport.

But don’t let the name fool you.

These ping pongers are fully clothed while swinging their paddles.

Raharinosy says, “Naked is just a fun word. No one’s been disappointed that we’re not naked. There hasn’t been anyone who showed up naked either, but that would be fun.”

Despite their lack of nudity, the buddies have found a following with celebrities like Owen Wilson, Wes Anderson, and Matthew Broderick by throwing ping pong parties, and have made it their main goal to spread the word on the sport’s awesomeness.

The threesome is also training hard to make it to the 2012 Olympics in London.

Raharinosy explains, “We practice four hours a day, and have a robot that throws balls at us. We’re still getting beat by kids, but they’re the best little kids.”
