My ping pong journey began in the garage basement at age 10, hitting a ball against the wall, trying to get 100 in a row. From there, I took a college ping pong class, which opened my eyes to the competitive side of the sport. At the time, I was ranked second in CA for badminton in the under-21 division.
When I came across research showing that ping pong is one of the best activities for preventing Alzheimer’s, my switch to ping pong was complete. I decided to open a ping pong academy for kids; this would be the best way to help grow the sport and get people to play a game they can enjoy for their whole lives.
Opening this academy allowed me to play every day, eventually reaching a master level before becoming a SPIN PRO in 2015!
