USA Table Tennis (USATT), the National Governing Body for the sport of table tennis in the United States, has signed a comprehensive partnership with Boulder (CO) based PepPod to become the "Official Nutritional Energy Drink of USATT." The partnership includes a wide range of marketing and promotional elements, including title sponsorship of USATT Insider powered by PepPod and event-based activation.
"We are excited to welcome PepPod to the USATT family," said Gordon Kaye, CEO of USA Table Tennis. "I use PepPod myself and can speak to the many benefits that differentiate PepPod from its competitors. This partnership is a perfect alignment of two organizations that are heavily invested in the growth of table tennis in the United States. They believe in the sport and in the future of USATT."
PepPod is nutritional energy that delivers optimal human performance and empowers users to bring out their inner champions. PepPod is a citrus-flavored, effervescent tablet that dissolves quickly in any liquid and fits perfectly inside the top of any water bottle. PepPod is designed and proven to extend physical performance, enhance focus and concentration, and provide an overall feeling of health and vitality.

Working together, these ingredients provide a clean-burning fuel that will deliver nutrition quickly and efficiently and will boost your Table Tennis game! We look forward to seeing you out on the Tables!
"PepPod is honored to formalize our partnership with USATT," added Weston Trapp, Creative Director at PepPod and an active USATT member. "We are thrilled to have so many professionals and players endorsing, promoting, and using our product including Richard McAfee, our Player Ambassadors, and the Colorado University-Boulder Table Tennis Team. Through our involvement at all levels, we hope that PepPod will empower athletes across the country and help bring Table Tennis to the level it should be. We love this game and are committed to the sport."
PepPod's other table tennis related interests include partnerships with the National Collegiate Table Tennis Association (NCTTA), the Sky High Table Tennis Club (along with several other USATT affiliated clubs in the Denver/Boulder area), and two competitive table tennis Player Ambassadors: Manohar Karthik and Kevin Korb.
