Clubs and Coaches

In the United States, the best places to play table tennis are clubs. Clubs generally welcome players of all levels. You don’t need to bring a partner; you can just show up and find other people who want to play. Many clubs also have coaches who give group or individual lessons. Here is a list of clubs and coaches that I know about:

Bay State Games Hall of Fame

The Bay State Games Hall of Fame was created in 2001 to achieve two major goals. The first was to recognize Bay State Games athletic alumni who have gone onto prestigious and successful collegiate, professional, or Olympic careers, while the second was to recognize former coaches, officials, sports organizers, volunteers, venues, and organizations that have made significant contributions to the Bay State Games throughout its history. This unique format of recognizing athletes as well as individuals and organizations that have played a significant role in the success of the Games has led to an impressive list of Hall of Fame inductees. Each year, nominations for the Hall of Fame are reviewed by a committee which makes the final determination on who is inducted. Nominations can be submitted by anyone. Criteria include years of service, role within the Games, and a host of other factors.
