In the rear of a darkened pool hall on 11th Avenue, Min Shili, a former Chinese national Ping-Pong trainer, is afflicted by another lesson using a 54-year-old Wall Street banker that will beat most anyone in the New York Athletic Club. Mr. Min, who has coached some of the very best players in the world, has seen greater Ping-Pong from kids in China. He doesn't hold back his disgust regardless of his friendship with the banker and the 20 he receives to get a canning best ping pong paddles lesson.

"No! No! No!" He traces. "Keep down your paddle!" He states in Spanish, that's the only speech the banker have in common. Mr. Min's face twists in misery. "Coaching can be quite debilitating here," he afterwards says in Chinese. Ping-Pong hasn't been a lot of game in the usa, in a summertime pastime played sandpaper paddles on green tables. But at the past five decades, the match was changed by the influx of immigrants from countries such as Nigeria, Korea and especially China, who have brought with them a fresh rigor and yes machismo into a game that many Americans still bump with Hula-Hooping.

Specialized Ping-Pong parlors and nightclubs, long a fixture in the Far East, have started moving across the nation -- Queens alone has just two -- starting the entire world of 150 carbon-fiber paddles and freeway-speed slams into a multiethnic assortment of gamers. "These guys can play," said Robert Mitchell, a Schwarzenegger-esque correction officer in the Manhattan Correctional Center, dripping perspiration over the ground of this Westside Table Tennis Club on 11th Avenue and 50th Street. "I believed I had been great, but I came here and discovered I am nothing."

Top players from all over the globe have raised the USA from a digital non-entity in world contest to, well, at least respectability. Nowadays, 15 of the country's top 20 players are immigrants, for instance, present men's and women's national champions -- David Zhuang of both New Jersey and Amy Feng of Maryland, that are both from China. Chinese are the trainers for the men's and women's Olympic teams, and if not for the fact that many top Chinese gamers have to become taxpayers, they'd dominate the Olympic team too.

With the support of Chinese gamers, the United States men's team stunned the world this past month by finishing third at the World Team Cup contest in Atlanta, it is highest finish in almost six decades. Two out of those 3 group members were out of China, as were three members of their women's team.
"I had been the sole American-born participant on our national group," explained James Butler of Augusta, Ga., who coached in China as a kid and is currently ranked fourth in the USA. "They are good enough to where just a few here can compete together and they control the remainder."

Mr. Min clarified that contemplating the near-religious status allowed Ping-Pong in certain nations, there's minimal prospect of American-born players fitting the immigrants.

Mr. Min started his formal training when he was 12, playing five hours every day. From the time he was 22, he had a college diploma in physical education, with a specialization at Ping-Pong, in the Wuhan Institute of Physical Culture in Hubei Province. The match he plays bears small similarity to cellar Ping-Pong. The title differs. For serious gamers, it's table tennis. In areas of Europe and Asia, the match is played before sellout crowds, that cover to watch celebrities such as Kong Linghui of China or even Jan-Ove Waldner of Sweden. They whack balls around $1,000 tables from Sweden, flair about in the most up-to-date in Japanese table tennis wear, and also can bring house six-figure wages.

The contest to make it to the top is grueling and pitiless. John Zuehlke of new york, who analyzed table tennis in China, said that he had been frustrated after two decades of instruction he was prepared to abandon the game despite being one of the best 100 players in this nation. "My trainer said if I had been a 10-year-old woman, I'd be an O.K. participant in China," Mr. Zuehlke explained. For 2 years, Mr. Min, 42, lived the grueling life of a Ping-Pong celebrity in China. He attained the height of his career in the 1970's when he had been a part of the Chinese national team.

But from the late 1980's, he understood his best years were as both a player and a coach, and also the strain of trying to remain on leading a state where celebrities are generated by the tens of thousands was sporting. He started shopping his abilities across the world, working for decades as a national club for Ecuador prior to coming into america.

Mr. Min stated he really came to the country with the expectation of leaving the game behind. "I was drained after a lot of decades," he explained. However, without no money, he dropped back on table tennis and found himself a favorite trainer. To restrain the flooding of Chinese Ping-Pong stars round the planet, the International Table Tennis Federation changed its principles in 1991, requiring gamers to become permanent residents of the nation they represent for at least three decades. To compete on the United States Olympic team, players should be taxpayers.

For players born in the USA, the diaspora of Chinese was a double-edged sword. Mr. Butler, who's rated 100th in the world, stated there are all those immigrant players dominating the game that lots of native-born players are closed from their national team along with the opportunity to compete globally.
However, Mr. Butler added that the immigrant celebrities also have attracted new global esteem for American Ping-Pong and also have helped players break from their cellar.

"They could help us a whole lot," said Mr. Butler, who's still dazed by the USA group's third-place finish from the World Team Cup. "With their assistance, we did it together.

A bunch of technical Ping-Pong parlors and nightclubs cater to this new breed of gamers. One, Champion Ping-Pong at Jackson Heights, Queens, is the fantasy of Choi Young Sam, a Korean immigrant. Mr. Choi was an avid participant in Korea, in which local Ping-Pong parlors are as prevalent as swimming halls in this nation. Following four years at the USA, he saved enough cash handling a furniture shop to start his very own decks.
Renan Mendoza, 32, a nurse in the Philippines who resides in Jackson Heights, said he was startled the first time that he detected that the Ping-Pong home since he never envisioned the game being popular in this country. He saw the contest tables indoors and purchased a 100 paddle. "You want a fantastic racket to perform these folks," he explained.

New York's highest-ranking participant is an former fellow national team member, Abass Ekun, 32, who currently lives in the Bronx.
Ranked 10th in the country, Mr. Ekun operates in the mornings bringing papers and heads into the Westside Table Tennis Club to trainer until late in the day.
He could be a taskmaster. Throughout one training session returning functions with Mr. Mitchell, the correction officer, he also captured a wisp of a smile on his pupil's face.

Mr. Mitchell started practicing when he moved to work in the Manhattan Correctional Center, where guards, '' he explained, often play the match. Ever since he started taking classes from Mr. Ekun, he's picked up a wicked cross-spin function and is only starting to master the forehand loop, the most fundamental attacking stroke of innovative players. He explained his everyday drama has improved considerably, although he's shown just some of his new hints to his own co-workers in prep for an upcoming championship one of correction officers.

"Let us put it this way," he explained. "They are likely to be amazed. It is going to take them at least 10 things to understand how to come back this function."
