Marty Reisman – Former President

Table Tennis Nation was founded by table tennis legend Marty Reisman, a 23-time international and domestic champion, author, world-class hustler, performer, unmistakable colorful character and unarguably the most charismatic player to ever step onto the court.

Marty became mesmerized with the game at the age of 12 – the kerplock of the ball across the table, the buzzing vibration of each shot up the wrist, the adrenaline, the drama – and has since devoted his life to the game, ultimately becoming one of the greatest table tennis champs to ever live.

Marty has played (and won) against presidents and princes, CEOs and celebrities, sports stars and socialites, musicians and maharajas. He’s toured as the opening act for the Harlem Globetrotters and played in front of crowds of 75,000. His trademark forehand can clock a staggering 115 mph. He holds the title as the oldest person to ever win a national open title in a racket sport, an achievement he has held since 1997 where at the age of 67 he won the US Hardbat National Championship.

Marty passed away in December of 2012, but his spirit and love of ping pong still drives Table Tennis Nation.
