I can answer most questions about competitive table tennis,tournament rules, equipment, rule changes, and the evolution of the game over the past forty years.

Experience in the area

I was a member of the USTTA for twenty years and an active tournament player with a rating of 1700. Since retiring from the game, I have organized several area clubs and have volenteered my time teaching new players.

Organizations

Niskayuna Table Tennis Club

Education/Credentials

High school graduate, some college

Awards and Honors

Various trophies over a twenty-five year span, mostly in sanctioned Class "A" to Class "C" singles and doubles events.

What do you like about this subject?

Table tennis is a sport anyone can play. It pays to be in shape, but one can achieve a national rating simply by competing in a couple of tournaments.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

I no longer actively compete because of the rule changes. Tournament games are now played to 11 instead of 21 and a larger, slower ball is used.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

Ping Pong and table tennis are two different games. Ping Pong is a trade name adopted by a game manufacturer around 1902. Table tennis is a legitimate sport.

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

The new rule changes are very controversial, in my opinion. The shorter game (11 instead of 21) seems to take away much of the strategy. Now, istead of five serves, the server only gets two.
