2018 Table Tennis Training

The tournament this past weekend was a great success! Check out a few short videos and the full write-up on our Facebook page

We’ve had 15+ participants in the past two open play sessions and attendance has been trending up, let’s keep it going!

Tuesday Training Table

On Tuesday nights, the Robopong 2050 and lots of training balls will be available for use by visitors and club members. For the foreseeable future, one table will be the dedicated coaching table for multi-ball training and serve practice from 6:00 – 8:30pm every Tuesday

Saturday Open Play

On Saturday afternoons, we will continue to have open play from 1:00 – 4:00pm. However, we are now implementing an optional ladder system so participants may compete on a regular basis to see where they rank amongst the local competition. This is an easy way to get us on track to start having league nights in the future.
