Larry Hodges

Larry was introduced to the world of table tennis at the age of 16 when fate led him to Marty Reisman’s “The Money Player” at his high school library. He was inspired to learn more about USATT, found a local club, and gave it everything he had. Despite repeat poor performances, he stuck with it and was the best at the club a few years later. Soon he was National Collegiate Doubles and Team Champion and reached top 20 in the US, with 29 national titles and numerous state titles, including state champion in three states – Maryland, North Carolina, and Colorado. He’s won Open Singles at 17 tournaments. He’s also won a lot of national hardbat titles, but he normally uses sponge. But it was with his subsequent coaching, writing, organizing, promoting, and directing career that he really left his mark.

Larry has a Master’s degree in Journalism, and a Bachelor’s degree in Math, with concentrations in computer science and chemistry, all from University of Maryland since he didn’t want to leave the local table tennis community. He has worked with the best players in the country. Suffice to say, he knows a thing or two about the important table tennis skills and game strategies. We’re thrilled to regularly share his insights, expertise, and analysis at We Are Butterfly.
