USA Table Tennis What's New US Table Tennis Hall...

US Table Tennis Hall of Fame Update

By Sean O'Neill, US Table Tennis Hall of Fame President | April 08, 2020, 12 a.m. (ET)

Dear US Table Tennis Hall of Fame Friend and Supporter,

US Table Tennis Hall of Fame sends our warm wishes to you and your family during these trying times. As we work together to beat this common foe, please continue to follow your state and national health/wellness recommendations and stay #PongPositive.

We announced the class of 2020 on the USA Table Tennis website a few weeks ago and would like to once again congratulate para players Pam Fontaine and Sebastian DeFrancesco along with contributors Roman Tinyszin (Umpire, Referee & Coach) and Christian Lillieroos (Coach, Instructor & Organizer). David Sakai was also recognized for his lifetime contribution to the sport as a player, coach, sponsor and key member in bringing the 2018 World Veteran Championships to the United States.

Our plan was to host our annual dinner on Sunday, July 5 prior to the US National Championships (July 6-10) at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas. At this time, the tournament has been postponed and we will run the event at the 2020 US Nationals when it is re-sheduled. Rest assured we will keep you posted on any updates through the USATT webpage and social media platforms in addition to our facebook page at:

Instead of asking for your annual donation to the Hall of Fame this year to help defray the additional costs of the annual dinner we would rather say, “thank you for everything you have done” for our non-profit group.

We have been very judicious with your donations and can weather this storm as many people are feeling uncertainty.  Best wishes and we look forward to seeing you at the 2020 US Nationals.
