Recent activity, new players, equipment update

Lots of great activity at LRTTC last Saturday, March 16, 2013, including Sherwood league matches, two new players/visitors from a local high school, and all together about 13-14 people playing on 6 tables. During the last few weeks, other new players have also joined the club.  We look forward to continued excitement and participation!
 
In other news, the club recently experienced issues with equipment storage, damage to one of the tables, relocation of barriers in storage, and secure storage for smaller equipment items.
 
The club has also published a new LRTTC fee structure, which will take effect beginning in April 2013.

LRTTC members attend Seemiller training camp in Memphis

Kedar, Mohan and Manju attended a table tennis camp on February 1-3, 2013 in Memphis. The camp was conducted by former U.S. National Champion and Olympian Dan Seemiller Sr and his son, who is rated around 2300. Chris Hardin of the Memphis Table Tennis Club organized the camp which took place at the Davis Community Center.

About 20 players attended the 3-day camp.  Although LRTTC members were only able to attend 2 of the 3 of the days, both days were filled with vigorous training lasting 7 hours a day.

The camp started with basic training on how to do simple strokes, how far from the table to stand and other hand and foot coordination training. Coach Seemiller spent quite a bit of time on explaining different strokes and then asking participants to follow up. Training included forehand and backhand strokes, moving around the table, a couple of simple but most effective serves, and how to handle tricky serves.

Kedar, Mohan, and Manju had the opportunity to play against each other in the camp and get one-on-one training from Coach Seemiller and his son.

Overall, the trio enjoyed the camp and the opportunity to learn new skills from one of the top table tennis players in the world. One of the most important things was that they met a bunch of table tennis enthusiasts and made some good friends from the table tennis community in Memphis.
