Sunday Table Tennis

Every Sunday afternoon, beginning at 1:30, AGTTA offers free group coaching. The free coaching program has become one of the most popular features of our club. Classes geared toward juniors, beginner adults, and intermediate level players help our players develop their skills in a fun group setting. See our coaching page for information about our volunteer coaches.

2012-coaching-classAGTTA Holds First ITTF Course in Southeast

AGTTA and the Atlanta Contemporary Chinese Academy teamed up to host the first ITTF-PTT Level One coaching course held in the southeast part of the United States. Richard McAfee was our course instructor. He has taught this course all over the world. There were 13 participants, several of whom came from outside of Georgia. The course was extremely educational and fun. Thanks to everyone who helped bring this prestigious course to Georgia.

Fair Play

You may have noticed the sign at the sign-in table on Tuesdays about using approved equipment and not using speed glue. AGTTA encourages all players to use approved equipment. We have a number of players who are not serving legally. If you are hiding the ball with your arm, not tossing the ball six inches, or lowering the ball below table level, you are not serving legally and you are getting an unfair advantage in games. Please make sure you are serving legally. Your fellow club members will greatly appreciate it.

HELP WANTED

AGTTA is a nonprofit corporation that relies for the most part, on volunteers to run our club. We currently could use help in several areas. Volunteer coaches, photographers, media specialists, tournament helpers, marketing specialists, grant writers, assistant league directors, and coaching assistants are just a few of the jobs that we could use help with. If you have a special skill that you feel could help our club, contact Brian Crisp at briancrisp@aol.com.
