Nigel Christopher, RCH Retirement Specialist and table tennis champion, competes this Saturday, June 2nd in the Table Tennis Takeover, a local round-robin tournament benefiting ACEing Autism, a unique charity that utilizes the sport to positively impact children affected by autism. Nigel, along with Gregory Riley, another top-rated player from the Charlotte Table Tennis Club(CTTC), appeared Wednesday, May 30th on WBTV 's Morning Break to promote the event and to showcase their talents.

In 1994, Nigel won the NCAA Men's Championship title, representing the table tennis powerhouse Anderson College (South Carolina).
