The PongStarz debut hit it out of the park at Dodgers Stadium with SPiN Standard for The LAUSD 5K "Move It" Challenge! Next stop on the event tour is KIPP Bay Area Schools at the Ping Pong Smackdown!  http://www.teamusa.org/USA-Table-Tennis/Features/2015/February/06/LAUSD-and-Pongstarz-Hit-Dodger-Stadium
Back by popular demand by LAUSD students last year, PongStarz took the helm to sponsor, organize, and manage a Ping-Pong Challenge with a pro crew from SPiN LA and prize paddles from Gilbert Table Tennis Center.

Story

Professional Table Tennis Champion
Introduction
Promo Reel

With an aggressive and all out attack styled game, Kim consistently ranked in the top 12 US women for several years during the eighties and early nineties. She also won several gold medals at U.S. Olympic Festivals from 1982-1991 and was considered one of America's most promising sports stars. Kim holds numerous state and national titles, and even still holds the record for the fastest reflexes ever recorded at any U.S. Olympic Festival by any athlete in any sport featured on ESPN! While she was in training for 1992 Olympic Trials Kim suffered a shattered right arm in a freak accident and was forced to end her career. Kim didn't touch a paddle for 18 years. In 2010, prior to the grand opening of SPiN Hollywood (owned by Susan Sarandon), she tried to play again and to her own amazement she was able to play very well. She was quickly offered a weekly hosting position at SPiN Hollywood and started training at the Gilbert Table Tennis Center to hone her skills again. With her recent success in competition, she secured several corporate sponsors (in and outside) of table tennis with companies and corporations who now support her tour of competitions, events and exhibitions.  In 2012, Kim Gilbert qualified for and finished in the Top 12 Women at the U.S. Olympic Trials!  In February of 2014 she will be featured in Top Spin Movie with other U.S. Olympians!

 

Kim is also hired as a professional table tennis player to host corporate, private and special events.  There is a movement afoot in the United States now whereby “Ping-Pong” is being utilized in business as a way of breaking the ice between executives, because on the "court" everyone is made equal by virtue of their competitive spirit and enthusiasm for the game. This is a trend that has been highlighted in the national business press including Business Week Magazine, which has recently profiled her.  Kim’s enthusiasm for promoting the sport and the inspiration she provides for spectators has been embraced by the media covering her events.  Kim has been profiled by ESPN, NBC, KCOP, Universal Sports, Los Angeles Times and Daily News.

Three- time U.S. Olympic Festival Gold Medalist and fastest reflexes ever recorded at the US Olympic Festival by ESPN. Top 12 Finalist at the 2012 U.S. Olympic Trials. 2013 International Sports Festival Gold Medalist. Professional Table Tennis Champion featured in Top Spin Movie to be released in 2014.
