One of the hottest sports growing, Diamond Spas wasn’t totally surprised when they got a call requesting a stainless steel ping pong table. Ping Pong bars are opening across the nation (Spin in NYC) while celebrities are even getting in on the game. While there are even celebrity ping pong blogs devoted solely on just that. The word on the street is that Susan Sarandon loves the game so much that she is creating a new reality TV show on her ping pong obsession. While Diamond Spas main focus lies on the custom fabrication of stainless steel and copper aquatic products, they are enjoying dabbling in the fun!
