BumperNets.com is the online branch of America's First Table Tennis Store. The retail store is located in the Riverchase Galleria Mall in Birmingham, Alabama. The store and retail concepts originated in the mind of National Sr. Olympian Gold Medalist Homer Brown in August of 1999.
The idea and dream were started when Brown resigned as COO of Vulcan Oil Co. in late 1998. Brown had worked for BP Oil for twenty-three years in marketing and retail training before completing his last goal in the oil business of actually running a large oil company himself.
Brown wanted to make a living doing what he loved: promoting and playing table tennis. His dream included sharing a great sport with others while giving back to the sport. Therefore, he took his retail experience in the oil industry to create an interactive retail store that allows customers to rent game tables or receive lessons from professionals along with purchasing any equipment needed for a wide variety of games.
With the combined experience of the owner and professional staff at BumperNets, we can help you with your selections by e-mail, phone, or at the retail store. We look forward to hearing from you soon or having you visit our store in the near future.
