Paddle Palace is owned by Judy Hoarfrost. Judy was inducted into the US Table Tennis Hall of Fame as well as the Oregon Sports Hall of Fame. With numerous US Junior and Senior titles, Judy was a member of the US Team for ten years, and a member of the famous “Ping Pong Diplomacy” Team that made history in 1971. In the early 1970s, her family opened a table tennis club in downtown Portland, Oregon. It was named “Paddle Palace” because of its palatial home in an historic Elks Club Building, in a ballroom with chandeliers and ornate carvings on the high ceiling. This successful full-time club was a magnet for players and teams from around the world and a center for training, leagues, and tournaments. Paddle Palace developed a computer rating system for the Pacific Northwest that became the model for the current USATT ratings system.
Paddle Palace evolved from club to full-time equipment business in the late 1970s. Paddle Palace was early to become computerized, and jumped onto the internet even before the advent of shopping-cart technology. We continue to work to employ the best technology, shipping methods, communication methods, and business practices, all with the aim of offering our customers the best possible table tennis shopping experience.
While equipment sales and serving our customers is our #1 focus in business, Paddle Palace also contributes to growing the sport. Paddle Palace is the ball sponsor for USA Table Tennis and the US Open and US Nationals, and is involved in many tournament and player sponsorships. In 2016, Paddle Palace returned to it's roots and opened Paddle Palace Club, a full-time professional table tennis club located right next door to the Paddle Palace equipment company.
