About the Owner

Khaleel Asgarali



When and why did you start playing ping pong?

I started playing ping pong before I could remember. My father was a national team member and coach in Trinidad and Tobago. I started on the dining room table because I was too short for the real one.

What has ping pong taught you the most?

It has taught me to work through problems by staying calm and searching for solutions, and to never stop fighting.

Where do you see ping pong going?

I see ping pong increasingly gaining popularity. Once the sport gains more of a following, the money will come and the sport will be able to attain the level of respect that other major commercial sports hold.
