Party for Henry Sit and Mark Johnson

Henry finished school and will go back to China to work. We wish him a prosperous future.

Mark, Mr. Ping Pong, just had his 55th birthday. Sure doesn't look like a 55-year-old.

Happy Easter and Table Tennis Resurrection

Not sure if inspired by ICC, the second mega table tennis club has opened in Southern California! And guess what? Off the record, don't tell anyone just yet, I was told that there will be another one open next month.:-) Although won't be as big but will be operated by a well respected coach. I'm sure you will hear about it soon. 

The new LATTA club in southern California has pushed the envelope very high. The club features:
  • 10K+ square feet floor area 
  • High ceiling
  • Competition grade floor mat
  • Pro shop
  • Great full-time coaches (US Nationals Champion Crystal Huang and former US Women's team member Tawny Banh for now) 
  • Three weekly round robins
Most of all, their passion. Although overwhelmed by so much unexpected administration "chores", everyone involved truly believe in the sport.

LATTA is at 10180 Valley Boulevard, El Monte, CA 91731
