Leon the Magician is stupefying table tennis fans around the world.
The professional magician is a member of The Magic Circle, a selective organisation where you must serve two years as an apprentice before gaining full membership via performance or magical thesis. That’s right, he is a member of a real life Hogwarts.
Not only is Leon a magical maestro, but he has also been playing table tennis seriously since the age of 10 and now coaches at the Urban Table Tennis Club in between his sell-out shows in local London theatres and private events.
“I love combining magic and table tennis, my two favourite things ever. I hope the more I do it, the more people will want to play table tennis. And yes I have been known to bring a table tennis table on the stage sometimes to perform a trick.” Leon the Magician
Inspired by his trip to Düsseldorf for the Liebherr 2017 Championships, Leon tested his talents in a trick that would have made Professor McGonagall and made a table tennis table disappear mid-rally.
Leon is a familiar face at tournaments, entertaining competitors, spectators and muggles with magic tricks.The 21 year old has already performed a number of jaw dropping illusions such as walking through a glass door at a table tennis centre; an absolutely smashing trick you have to admit.
