Hi all, we will be closed on August 11th and August 18th. Thank you!
We had to move our Friday night 9PM-12AM session to Sunday 8PM-11PM.
Sorry for the inconvenience!
Also, we will be open Monday 9PM-12AM
I'm very happy to announce that we are now open 4 days a week! Here's our new, year-round schedule!
Sundays: Open sometimes TBD
Membership cost is 45$ a month for Unlimited play!
Due to an earlier closing time at the Ethical Charter School, Our Saturday schedule has been altered -
Our new schedule is:
10AM-1PM & 7PM to 9PM
Additionally, we will be hosting open play events Sundays when available -
I'll be updating this page, as well as sending out texts and emails with updated times -

Saturdays and Sundays at the Armory this summer have been cancelled - the JCAA had to, for scheduling and financial reasons, cancel their Summer programming - not to fear though, we found a new location to host our summer events!
SUMMER PROGRAMMING RESUMING WITH NEW DAYS ADDED
I'm happy to say that we will be resuming summer programming at our new second location at
the Ethical Community Charter School, on 95 Broadway in Jersey City. Our new summer programming will commence Friday the 27th. the schedule is as follows -
Friday Evenings 9PM-12AM
Saturday Mornings 11AM-3PM
Saturday Evenings 9PM-12AM
NEW WEEKDAY EVENING PROGRAMMING YEAR ROUND: FRIDAYS ARE YEAR ROUND!
I've very happy to finally get some time during the week in the evening and hopefully see a lot of new faces! We're taking baby steps with the administration at our new location, but have signed a contract for Friday nights, year round, from 9PM to 12AM. There's a strong possibility that, if all goes well, we will be able to expand to have multiple days during the week (9PM-12AM) I'm hoping for at least 3. These days will be combined with our Saturday morning programming from 10AM to 2PM with the JCAA which is coming this fall and winter.
NEW CHEAPER PRICE!
It's my hope to in the future make this programming 100% free with free on-site coaching, but in the meantime, I am able to now offer a membership option for those who want to come more regularly. Hopefully in the future we will have 4 or 5 days during the week, so memberships will make more sense, but for the time being, I will be offering, memberships at 25$ per month, meaning, you can come anytime and play.

I'm so excited to announce a new development for Hot Shots; we have partnered with the Jason Purino and will be offering programming through his organization, the JCAA! Jason has programming slated with them year round, so I'm very grateful for opportunity to be working with him to continue to host and our current open play programming, as well as to expand and develop new programming; clinics, league play, tournaments and so on.
We are taking small steps for the first season -
Here's our upcoming schedule -
Sundays - 10:00AM to 2:00PM
Dates: April 22, 2018 to June 17, 2018

See you all there!
Good news! Jersey City Recreation and Hot Shots were able to secure some more free open play times in January, February, and March at the Jersey City Armory. Since the Armory is primarily used for track and field events - and track and field season is in full swing until the end of March - time slots are a bit hard to come by.
Here's our upcoming schedule! I will be sending out reminder emails and meetup events before each open play as before.

In the meantime, i am looking for another spot to put some tables for us during the gaps. The city doesn't have any locations unfortunately, but if anyone out there knows of a school or other building we could use, please let me know asap!
See you on the court!
Here's an update on what is happening with Hot Shots! There have been lots of exciting developments and changing circumstances which i have had to adapt to over the past 9 months towards my endeavor to bring table tennis to Jersey City. I am happy to say that we have found at least a temporary home in one of the nicest possible places around, the Jersey City Armoury on Montgomery and Summit Ave. For those of you who don't know the space, it is a massive building which hosts large basketball games -
I will initially be putting 8 tables here with the ability to expand the amount based on how many people show up the first weekend and month and plan to be running programming steadily if all goes well. So if you want this to become a permanent spot for us, please show up!
Coming with this city partnership is somewhat of a changing circumstance for hotshots, from being a "club" to being a facilitator of city events, perhaps if everything goes well and there is tons of interest, than we can find a space to sublet for ourselves to have a more private space.
We have upcoming events!
These events are primers to feel out the interest level before moving forward with more regular weekly programming both during the week and the weekends
Saturday December 16th - from 9AM to 1PM
Sunday December 17th - from 9AM to 2PM
Saturday December 30th - from 9AM to 1PM
Sunday December 31st - from 9AM to 12PM
There may also be an expansion to get some tables at Pershing Field and a spot on MLK, more
to come on that as it develops
If you are planning on coming to any of the above upcoming events, Please Write Me And RSVP
so i can be sure to have the correct amount of equipment, and so i can work with the armoury to have the space in the actual room locked in.
Lastly, i wanted to mention to everyone out there that this weekend a small club opened up attached to the Newport PATH station called Wang Chens, check it out!
It's been a good week for table tennis in Jersey City it seems :)
Sincerely, Gaelan Mullins
