Pete May: Augusta native, passionate athlete, national table-tennis champion

Pete May sat on the porch of his Augusta home in his signature look: a black cowboy hat and aviator sunglasses. May has traveled across the world in this look, slowly becoming one of the top athletes in his age group.

May won the men’s singles ages 75+ and 80+ at this year’s U.S. National Table Top Championships. He has won many titles over the years since he discovered the sport at the Boy’s Club as a teenager.

“I was a highly competitive kid that wanted a niche, and all of a sudden, ping-pong became it,” May said. “By the time I was 17, I won the city championship and I won that for three or four years in a row, and everybody said nobody could beat me.”
