I am sure Miles was referring to the type of players that ordinarily participate in a weekly neighborhood session, but what he did not tell me is how to beat a person who hits a Klampar Hungarian goulash side-spin loop drive or a Sch�ler chopper. Actually, I am speaking of the same shots one encounters at a typical USTTA tournament, even though the players are not as adept as Hungary's Tibor Klampar (recent winner of the Vanderbilt tournament) or Germany's Eberhard Sch�ler. Even Miles might shudder at the thought of meeting one of these two.
This leads me to the thought of how great it would be for the NCAA to adopt a table tennis program on an intercollegiate basis in place of some minor sports that have high operating costs and low income. Table tennis would be the perfect game to help relieve colleges and universities of their financial burdens.
