Organizers say the charity event this year will reach more then $500,000 raised in support of local charities.
Meanwhile, the organization is encouraging schools and retirement communities to take up the sport as a great way to build brain power.
On Coast Live we talk with Ken Lees, founder of PingPongforCharity and the PingPong.give Foundation about the event. We will also hear from a local expert, Dr. Anna Ordo f Hampton Roads Neuropsychology, about the health benefits of table tennis. And we will meet some of the competitors from the ping pong team at Westminster Canterbury.
