Ping pong club passed through siblings at HHS

Nov 12, 2019

Most families have a tangible heirloom, but for Eliza Polyak, 11, her family has shared something more unconventional.


The ping pong club was started in 2013 by Eliza’s oldest brother, Cole, as a fun escape before school with friends. After his graduation, the club was passed on to the other Polyak brother, Luke. Luke grew the club even more, then passed it down to the youngest Polyak sibling, Eliza, who currently runs it alongside Anna Serstock, 12. 


The Ping Pong club has around 15 weekly participants for every Monday session, but there is a total of 60 club members.


“Ping pong is meant to be fun. It’s a great way to start the week, anyone can play, and there’s not a lot of equipment required,” said Eliza.


Running a club under their family name has made the experience in Ping pong club especially meaningful. 


“Ping Pong Club has become such a tradition in my family and is a fun thing to share with my brothers, which makes it all the more special to me,” Eliza said. 


If you need a place to relax and play some table tennis, make a stop by the ping pong club.
