This past weekend, we threw ourselves into the action of the Chicago International Table Tennis Festival. The weekend tournament, co-hosted by Killerspin and the Chicago Sports Commission, gathered the top international table tennis talent to show off their finest moves on the ping pong table.

We’re suckers for anything remotely fun so we laced up our tennies and headed down to the Palmer House Hilton to have a one-on-one lesson with table tennis pro Biba Golic. Although the sport is all inclusive—size, age and sex don’t really matter!—the industry often refers to Biba as the ‘Anna Kournikova of table tennis’ and in 2005, ESPN named her one of the sexiest women in sports. Two honors that really raise table tennis’ street creed.

We catch up with Biba who shows us the ropes on her favorite game.
