Laszlo Pal (1936-2021)

by Anton Lehmann The well-known and popular table tennis coach, Laszlo Pal, passed away on Sunday 10th October 2021. He was 85 years old. One year ago, I met him on two occasions. Alongside other young people, it is now over 60 years since Laszlo Pal took me under his wing. He was always positive and had an eye for shortcomings, which he corrected in such a way you had the feeling of making immediate improvement. He reacted to a player’s progress with an enthusiasm that simply carried you away, spurring you to achieve even more. He was both a great table tennis coach and a good friend. The fact that I won a match against Eva Koczian, pays tribute to his efforts! Interest in
