The second World Championship of Ping Pong is set to start 1/4/2014 in London. They are using sandpaper paddles. The promoter claims he runs the tournament to help popularize the sport.  What is your take on this event?

Hi nopips, I have no problem with it. I wrote about it in a short segment in my blog this morning. Wish I could be there!

Don't we all wish we could be there! Kit Jeerapaet is a top tournament player in Florida, He was trained by a member of my club. He is not a sandpaper player. So it will be interesting to see how he adapts. A few years back some of the clubs started adding a sandpaper division to their tournaments. He does not play out of my club but plays out of another club in the area that we have a friendly competition with.  We all will be cheering for him. I think he will represent the country very well.

Here is a link to his club www.sunrisetabletennis.com
