Princeton finished 12th at the College Table Tennis National Championships in Plano, Texas, April 13-15. In the last decade, the team has been a regular visitor to nationals, finishing as high as second and earning a reputation as one of the best collegiate programs in the United States.

PAW contributor Jonathan Lin ’13 spoke with members of the team about practice, preparation, and the club’s recent history in the weeks leading up to their trip to Texas.

I love it! When I was at PU, I had a wonderful time playing table tennis at the club level and on the school team. The treat at the end was when the USTTA held an international championship tournament at Jadwin Gym in spring 1981. I'm delighted to see the team is so strong!

What a fine-looking team! I can remember playing endless TT games w/the late Henry Beam '60 in the basement of the late Key & Seal Club, but I doubt we'd get a point from these guys. Good luck in the big one.

You go, guys. I've only started lessons last year but I'm addicted. Wish I'd thought of TT as an undergrad. But then I never would have graduated.
