How were you introduced to table tennis?
Adam's mother, Lily Yip, was an accomplished player/coach for quite some time. She introduced the sport to him and his sister, Judy, when they moved to New Jersey in 1997.
Adam graduated from Princeton University in 2010 with a B.S.E. in Operations Research and Financial Engineering. He loves playing all sports, in particular: ultimate frisbee and basketball. He's also a loyal fan of the NY Yankees and NY Giants. He also finds it odd that 3 hours of multi-ball training is much less tiring than 3 hours of shopping...
Did You Know?
Adam was co-captain of the Princeton Ultimate Frisbee team his senior year in college, but hardly played any that year due to tearing his ACL playing soccer at the beginning of the season.
