This year, Albert Zhu and Alex Giangrasso are co-presidents of the club, assisted by Vice President Annaeliese Clark. Ping Pong, which was first played in Victorian England, became an Olympic sport in 1998. The game requires an advanced intellect and the ability to outsmart one’s competitor by changing the trajectory of the ball. It’s no surprise these Lourdeans are so skilled! Make sure to stay tuned to what is sure to be an amazing season for OLL’s very own Varsity Ping Pong Club.
