Back in 1983 while in college, I met and trained with a guy named Louis who played for the Czechoslovakia national Table Tennis team. I was very lucky to had the opportunity to train with him for about 8-10 months and became I pretty good player. Since school I’ve played table tennis for about a total of 10-15 hours and usually with a beer in one hand at a party.
While on vacation a couple weeks ago in Orlando, FL, I met, played and beat a young boy of about 14 that that plays competitive table tennis for the Gwinnett Table Tennis League. So, this weekend looked them up and saw that they were holding a tournament. I figured what the hell, so I showed up and played in the tournament and ended up winning the under 1400 division. So now I'm amember of the Gwinnett Table Tennis Club and have a USATT rating of 899. Looks like I found a sport to replace tennis ;o)
