 Free Class

Wednesdays

Staff trainer Cory Johnson leads a weekly FREE Fundamentals of Table Tennis Class. This is a perfect opportunity for true beginners or novices to experience our world-class facility for free and learn about one of the fastest growing sports in the US! Bring your friends and family. No RSVP or drop-in fee required!

This class covers the basic spin techniques of Table Tennis, including: The Push, Flip, Block, Hit, Chop, Loop, Fish, and Lob. Before practicing the arm mechanics of each stroke, we will look in-depth into lower-body movement: staying low/wide, having weight forward, and rotating with your core. With that stability in place, we then slowly move through the strokes in four zones: over-the-table, at-the-table, off-the-table, and away-from-the-table. This tutorial is a great way for beginning players to form good habits–and explore the possibilities–prior to developing their personal brand of offensive, defensive, or all-around style of play.
