WAB CLUB FEATURE: World Champions Table Tennis Academy
(by Steve Hopkins)
The World Champions Table Tennis Academy (WCTTA ) was the USA’s first full-time, professional table tennis Academy. Located in Santa Clara, California – in the heart of the Silicon Valley – the WCTTA offers private lessons, group trainings, training camps, league competitions, and other special events.
Created to serve the community, WCTTA is dedicated to educating players on how to play table tennis correctly while having fun. WCTTA offers world-class instruction for players of all age and ability, where the elite becomes better and the novice advances. Each personalized program is carefully designed to meet individual needs through the eyes of our experts.
The coaching team at WCTTA is among the most experienced in North America, working from a foundation created by two former 4-time World Champions, Li Zhen Shi and Zhang Li. Not only were Coach Li & Coach Zhang World Champions themselves, they also created students who became World Champions, Olympic Champions and Chinese National Champions as well (Fan Chang Mao, Wang Tao, Gao Jun, Liu Wei, to name a few). After moving to the US, Coach Li & Coach Zhang led the US Olympic & National Teams.
Coach Li remains the driving force of the coaching team today. He is joined by long-time German National Team Member and the current US Men’s Olympic & National Team Coach, Stefan Feth as well as by former multi-time US Junior National Champion and prior Women’s National Team Member, Nan Li.
