Today in Ping Pong History

Posted on by TableTennisNation

On April 13, 1979 the longest doubles ping pong match in history ended. The match started on April 9 of that year and lasted an absurd 101 hours 1 minute 11 seconds.

Americans Lance Warren, Phil Warren, and Mark Warren and Bill Weir played in this insanely long match in Sacramento, California.

Personally, I’m not sure I could spend 101 straight hours with a family member, let alone two. Either way, congratulations to Lance, Phil, Mark and Bill. Seems like your record will stand for the foreseeable future.

Since we’re talking about world records, don’t forget we’re searching for Australian Nick Anderson who is going for his own ping pong world record. If you have any info about him e-mail us at
