Celebrities Playing Table Tennis

In a moment of sudden clarity, I realized what this world needed was a web page devoted to pictures of celebrities playing table tennis. So here it is!

Current count: 1440 photos of 870 celebrities!

By Larry Hodges, with special thanks to major contributors Steve Grant, Benjamin Ott, Chuck Hoey (ITTF Museum), Robert Trudell, John Schneider, Tim Boggan (USATT Historian), USA Table Tennis, and TableTennisCoaching.com.

This is a purely non-commercial site. But if you want to read about table tennis, see my blog!

A lot of blogs and web pages have linked to this site. Here's a list of 68. It was even a "Yahoo Pick," and is one of their "Celebrity Picks.") This page averages over 15,000 downloads per day!

Have a photo to add to the collection? (Or see a mistake?)  Email it (or the location) and you'll get attributed! (If you need to snail mail, email for address.)
