Snapshot: table tennis in Koreatown, Los Angeles

Featuring club founder Song Je Ho

Song Je Ho arrived in the US from South Korea as a table tennis athlete in 1980 but put the sport aside to prioritize his personal life.

He later decided to launch his own club after receiving a $10,000 gift from a fellow churchgoer.

Located in Koreatown, LA, the club hosts more than 100 members that play regularly.
