Fulfilling the Promise: Will Shortz, “Table Tennis”



Angelo Pizzo speaks: When did you fall in love with table tennis? How old were you? Will Shortz speaks: I started when I was very young because my family had a Ping Pong table in our recreation room. Angelo speaks: Right. Will speaks: I remember I played with my
brother for a while until I beat him one day and then he never played with me
again. I became more and more obsessed with this and in 2011 I opened this space here in Pleasantville. I do remember a day, though, I came back to my fraternity house and I was explaining to
a friend that I had just come from table tennis, and he was asking me about it. So,
I just pulled out a ball from my pocket and showed him how that you hold the
ball when you serve, and he was blown away that anyone would walk around with a Ping Pong ball in his pocket.
