Chicago-based table tennis company Killerspin -- the ones who helped launch the career of world-famous player Biba Golic -- recently announced a partnership with Chicago Public Schools.

Unplug 'N Play "will create activity, exercise and stimulation for thousands of...students."

Killerspin's president, Robert Blackwell, Jr., sees his sport as "a safe and fun social alternative. If kids and their parents would take just 15 minutes a day for some sort of activity together -- whether it be table tennis or something else -- the connections within the family can be so much stronger."

To launch Unplug 'N Play, Killerspin and CPS are staging a table tennis demonstration at the Chicago Military Academy , (3533 S. Giles) on Tuesday, April 16 at 10 a.m. In addition to promoting the sport's many benefits, the demo also will include "a few other surprises."

Like maybe Biba versus Rahm?
