WAB CLUB FEATURE: Allen & Sons Table Tennis Club
(by Steve Hopkins)
Located in the San Fernando Valley, North of Santa Monica and Malibu in the greater Los Angeles area is Allen & Sons Table Tennis Club. The club began six years ago as the passion of a successful, retiring businessman.
Initially, the club provided four tables, but soon expanded. Today, Allen & Sons Table Tennis Club features four Butterfly tables, red synthetic flooring, and air-conditioning.
Our club has been used for multiple location shoots by our entertainment industry.
The new owner is a high-performance coach and former national coach. The Club features accomplished player-coaches, who offer individual and group lessons. Coaches include Fovad Kaseb (a former coach of Iran’s national team), Bella Livshin (a coach for 50 years who has won numerous US titles in Over 40 and Over 50 events), Dinh Nguyen (a former Vietnamese junior team member), Vahid Moseferi (an ITTF certified coach and former Iranian team member), and Xiao Jie “Jay” Yuan (a 2600 USATT rated player).
The club features group classes for all levels including four scheduled weekly sessions (Mondays, Wednesday, Fridays, Sundays). There are twice-weekly round robin competitions, and four USATT-sanctioned tournaments each year.
