AGTTA 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.
 

Coach on Sunday and Play for Free: Experienced players who are willing to coach or assist one of our current coaches have the opportunity to play at AGTTA for free on Sundays and Tuesdays. To volunteer you must be approved by our current coaching staff and be available to help out on Sundays from 1:30 until 3:00. You do not necessarily have to have coaching experience if you are willing to assist one of our coaches.
 
 

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.

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 Jon Gustavson at topspin2000@gmail.com.
