Experts on Duty for National Team at 2017 Super Camp

Not only are the hard working players at the 2017 Super Camp treated to top class conditions at the Triangle Table Tennis Center, but as day 2 began it was clear to see that they had been dealt an incredibly valuable coaching staff for their week of training. Coaches from across the country gathered together with the aim of sharing their experience and knowledge of the game and off training methods. At the head of the pack is indeed USATT High Performance Director Joerg Bitzigeio, formerly the National Coach of the German Women’s Table Tennis Team, having had much success coaching the US teams abroad in 2017 at the World Championships and Pan American events. His newly formed support crew include 4-time Olympian Gao Jun, one of the two current National Head Coaches hailing from her club California Table Tennis. Gao’s unique accomplishments as one of the world’s top female players in her time and as a skilled coach have already proven a significant asset to the girl’s coaching group.

Supporting the backbone of the camp is the newly formed National Coaching Development Team, featuring Maryland Table Tennis Center’s Wang Qingliang, Swan Warriors TTC and 2014 US Open Champion Tao Wenzhang and former Dutch Olympic Team Coach Pieke Franssen, now supporting Alameda Club.
