The Austin Table Tennis Club is located at 8956 Research Blvd in Austin. They are just off of US Highway 183 on the North side of Austin.
The club has been around for more than thirty years. They first started in the back of a bar, with a wooden dance floor serving a dual purpose during club hours. They have now grown into a full-time facility with 12000 square feet, high ceilings, great lighting, 15 tables and three additional training tables with robots. The club is open from 2p-10p during weekdays, from 1p-10p on Saturday, and from 1p-7p on Sunday.
There are leagues on two nights and a variety of coaching options. The Austin Table Tennis Club coaching program is headed by Coach Shahin Akhlaghpasand. Training is designed for players of all backgrounds and levels to achieve their table tennis goals – all much more quickly than would be possible on their own. Bato Kurt, Marguerite Cheung, and Clayton Pavlicek round out a highly skilled coaching staff.
Whether you are looking for a place to play for fun, for opportunities to compete, or for coaching tailored to your needs, the Austin Table Tennis Club has options for you.
Hours: Monday-Friday 2pm – 10p, Saturday 1pm – 10pm, Sunday 1pm-7pm
