WAB Featured Club: MK Georgia Table Tennis
(by Steve Hopkins)
MK GEORGIA TABLE TENNIS IS ANNOUNCING THE OPENING OF THEIR NEW CLUB. Enjoy your favorite sport on all brand new tables, with professional coaching, in a cozy atmosphere – all in a convenient location.
MK Georgia Table Tennis is in Duluth, Georgia just off of I-85 to the Northeast of Atlanta. Duluth is in the greater Atlanta metropolitan area, and is a suburb with a strong Asian influence which includes about 10% of the population being of Korean descent. The club itself is located at Industrial Boulevard and route 120 on the Northern side of Duluth.
MK Georgia Table Tennis is fully air-conditioned, an important feature for summers in Georgia. The facility features 8 professional tables, professional quality red rubber flooring, high ceilings, a practice robot, customized high intensity lighting, and spectator seating. The club is a great location for competition, fun, or training.
The club name (MK Georgia Table Tennis) comes from the director and head coach, Ms. Min-Kyun Kim. Ms. Kim is a well-respected USATT Certified National level coach, an ITTF International level umpire, a former Junior National Team Member of South Korea, and a former professional player in Korea (for Korean Air).
Min-Kyun was one of the coaches that were invited to participate in the 2018 Super Camp. The Super Camp was a gathering of some of the best coaches from across the country at the Triangle Table Tennis Club last December. They came to share their experience, knowledge, and training methods with national team members and select elite players. The invitation speaks volumes as other coaches who were invited included the USATT High Performance Director Joerg Bitziegeio, Olympian Gao Jun, MDTTC’s Wang Qingliang, Dutch Olympic Coach Pieke Franssen, and a handful of others. These were some of the most elite and diverse coaches the U.S. has to offer joining forces to push the game forward.
Whether you are looking for some friendly competition and exercise or complex tactics and development of an elite level game, MK Georgia Table Tennis has options to fit your needs.
