USATT Board Unanimously Elects Anne Cribbs As New Chair
Submitted by USATT

The Board of Directors of USA Table Tennis (USATT) announced today that Anne Warner Cribbs has been unanimously elected as the new Chair of the Board through December, 2017. Cribbs, and Olympic swimmer, has served on USATT’s Board as an Independent Director since 2013. She replaces out-going Chair Peter Scudner, whose term expired on December 31, 2016 and was not eligible to continue in that capacity under USATT’s term limit provisions.

Peter Scudner thanked the board for its service during his time as Chair and congratulated Anne Cribbs. “It has been an honor to serve as your Chair and I know we are in good hands with Anne for the future”, he said. “I am honored and excited to serve as the next Chair of USATT Board of Directors,” said Cribbs. “I look forward to working with the USATT Board and membership to continue to move our organization forward and support the great sport of Table Tennis in the United States and beyond.”

Cribbs’ ties to USA Table Tennis go deeper than her involvement as a member of the board. As the President and CEO of the Bay Area Sports Organizing Committee (BASOC), she organized the 2007 World Junior Table Tennis Championships, held at Stanford University. She also served as the Chair of the 40th Anniversary of San Francisco’s Three Day Celebration of Ping Pong Diplomacy (June 2011). This historic event showcased the Chinese Olympic Committee and their delegation and the US Table Tennis Teamincluding the original veterans who played. In December 2011, Cribbs traveled to China with the USATT Delegation for a reciprocal visit.

A part of the Olympic Movement since 1959, Cribbs captured gold at the 1959 Pan American Games and a year later competed at the 1960 Rome Olympic Games. Holder of the American records in both the one hundred and two hundred meter breast-stroke events, she placed fifth in the 200 Meter Breaststroke at the Rome Olympics and was a member of the gold medal-winning, 400-meter medley relay team. She retired from competitive swimming at the age of fifteen. Her long-standing contributions to the Olympic Movement were honored in 2015 when she received the prestigious Olympic Torch Award from the USOC recognizing her significant impact on the Olympic Movement by promoting the Olympic Ideals.
