Newgy Industries, Inc. founder and owner, Joseph E. Newgarden, Jr., a ping pong enthusiast, originally started working on the table tennis robot as a hobby in 1972. Three years later his hobby became a business. The table tennis robot took 16 years of research and development before its first commercial release in 1988. Robo-Pong® debuted to rave reviews from the table tennis community. It is a pattern that has continued with each new generation of Robo-Pong table tennis robots.
Still at the helm of Newgy Industries, Newgarden ensures his organization continues to refine the Robo-Pong to deliver the best quality table tennis robots with industry-leading functionality to meet the demands of the table tennis community. Newgarden believes the table tennis robot, if properly used, can revolutionize the way a person practices table tennis and learns the game. The table tennis robot provides a means for everyone from the beginner to national champion to have a practice partner ready to practice anytime. Newgy products are also designed as home-use games for family fun and entertainment, fitness and exciting competition in mind. The Robo-Pong table tennis robot is simple to use and store, reliable, virtually maintenance free and easy to set up, take down, and transport. Newgarden is passionately committed to producing table tennis products that are affordable, high quality and user friendly so that everyone can experience the competition, fitness benefits and family fun that table tennis offers.
Because of Newgarden’s vision to create the Robo-Pong table tennis robot, hundreds of thousands of individuals and families are enjoying the sport of table tennis in ways they never could before. Nothing teaches the sport of table tennis faster or more effectively than the Robo-Pong table tennis robot.
