MDTTC Newsletter for May 1, 2018

Welcome to the 72nd issue of the MDTTC News! As usual, there’s lots of news to report and new and ongoing programs, and we hope to see you at some of them. As usual a special thanks to MDTTC sponsors Butterfly and HW Global Foundation. Make sure to read my daily table tennis blog – I often write about MDTTC happenings there. And if you have a nice picture taken at MDTTC, email it to me and it might make the newsletter!

-Editor and Coach Larry Hodges; Publisher Wen Hsu.

Here’s the article by Coach Larry. Here’s the first paragraph: “The Maryland Table Tennis Center, founded in 1992, has been a successful full-time table tennis training center in the United States for almost 30 years. The club dominated play in the U.S. in the 1990s and much of the 2000s, winning over half of the gold medals at the Junior Nationals and Junior Olympics in many of those years, and at times having the top two men and top two women in the country, and over half of the top 20 players in the country. In 2011 the Men’s Singles Final at the Nationals was an all-MDTTC battle, with Peter Li winning over Han Xiao. MDTTC has seen a resurgence of a strong group of young players with its renewed focus on teamwork; coaches work together as a team and players train together as a team.”
