Back in the day, Amanda Graber was a nationally ranked table tennis athlete who represented the US at the World University Championships. After getting married and having 5 kids, Amanda took a decade away from the sport to focus on family and homeschooling. Amanda just recently returned to the competition scene as a way of getting fit and spending time with her kids who are now playing. They train regularly at the Samson Dubina Table Tennis Academy, play at home with each other, and even train with their Newgy robot in the basement.
