Paul Haldan

Paul Hâldan (born April 12, 1965 in Craiova, Romania) is a Romanian-born Dutch professional table tennis player.

After a match in the Netherlands in 1983, Hâldan defected, resulting in a 2-year ban for international matches instigated by the Romanian table tennis federation. Only after obtaining his Dutch citizenship in 1986/87 could he participate again internationally, resulting in a relative short career.[1]
