21 April 2021 marks the 50 year anniversary of the ‘Australian Ping Pong Diplomacy Tour’, where a group of five Australians travelled to China for competitions, training and cultural exchange. The Australian team comprised:

  • Noel Shorter (NSW) – Coach
  • Paul Pinkewich (NSW) – Player
  • Steve Knapp (NSW/VIC) – Player
  • Ann Middleton (née McMahon) (SA/NSW) – Player
  • Dr. John Jackson (SA) – President and Team Manager

The Tour played an important role in China opening their borders to the western world and was a precursor to official diplomatic relations being established between Australia and China. Noel, Paul and Steve, as the three surviving team members, reunited in Sydney to reminisce and celebrate their historic Tour.
