Actor, Lead Villain, Fayed, in hit series 24 joins Celebrity Line Up
We’re exited to announce THE FIRST of several Special Guests attending the Tenth Annual PingPongforCHARITY™ Events with Christian Laettner and Friends.
Adoni Maropis is so excited to join us this year. He has been blessed with the opportunity to play many diverse and memorable acting roles, such as: the lead villain, Fayed, in Season 6 of the Fox critically acclaimed hit series 24 with Kiefer Sutherland, the flamboyant evil sorcerer, Quan Chi, in the TV show Mortal Kombat Conquest, the regal falcon-man, Sakr, in the feature film Hidalgo with Viggo Mortensen, and the sarcastic undercover cop in the feature film The Gristle. Adoni, also, had strong supporting roles in the features: The Scorpion King, Bad Company, Alfie, and Troy.
Additionally, Adoni has won the National Championship and US OPEN Championship in Hardbat and Sandpaper Ping Pong and represented the USA at the World Championships of Ping Pong twice at Alexandria Palace in England. Adoni, actually, only started playing competitive Ping Pong at the age of 45.
“I’ve been a passionate and creative warrior/athlete my whole life. It’s such a tremendous part of me, like breathing. And when competing, I believe it’s the same as when one is performing as an actor in that you practice and train, yet on the day… free up and let it rip!”, Adoni shares.
Our entire 2018 Celebrity Guests and Pros will be available for to play ping pong with, take pictures with and sign autographs.
