ADVANCED-BEGINNER / INTERMEDIATE LEVEL
Triangle Table Tennis has a robust set of Group Instruction offerings for players at a wide range of age and skill levels. We will be glad to help you determine which might be a good fit for your needs.

This will provide an opportunity to become familiar with our outstanding facility, meet some of our coaches, learn about our wide variety of group & private coaching offerings, and find out more about open play times, tournaments, leagues, camps, special events, and specialty clinics. Each participant will have an opportunity to pick up a racquet and try out our state-of-the-art facility. Whether you are just curious, learning the basics, or a seasoned player, you’ll enjoy experiencing our center and meeting with top coaches and athletes as well as other players in the local community.
If you wish to meet with an experienced coach to assess your skills and find the right group coaching session for your individual needs, we are happy to arrange that for you! Please call or come by Triangle Table Tennis to discuss your questions or to arrange a skill assessment.
Group Instruction Goals
The goal of Triangle Table Tennis’ Group Instruction is to teach participants of all ages and abilities in a fun and positive group environment that allows each individual player to progressively improve his or her skills, and to excel, while gaining confidence and enjoying camaraderie in a sport well-known for its fellowship and lifetime aerobic benefit.
Our program helps improve overall personal fitness and develop table tennis ability through instruction that teaches and reinforces strong foundations, including:
- basic and advanced strokes
- constructive footwork
- honing of gross motor skills and coordination
- sportsmanship and etiquette
- individual and team tactics and game strategies
Group Instruction Registration
Most Group Instruction sessions are scheduled by skill level. Group Instruction sessions for each skill level are offered multiple times a week.
Players register in advance for Group Instruction for a defined block of time, and select which specific session dates and times they will attend, and pay fees based on those registrations. Coaches are scheduled to meet the needs of the number of players signed-up for each specific session. This provides flexibility for students when they pre-select the dates and times they will attend, and also allows Triangle Table Tennis to plan coach schedules to maintain an effective student to coach ratio. Subject to available capacity, the specific date and time selections may be changed with two weeks’ notice, or upon advancement to a higher skill level group.
Group Instruction Format
Group Instruction sessions are organized and scheduled by skill levels. Each beginner level session is 1.5 hours long, and all other skill level sessions are 2 hours long. Coaches carefully and continually assess individuals’ progress and needs within each group, and may adapt instruction to meet individual or group needs. Within each group, coaching session participants may be organized into pairings or sub-groups based on age and skill. This allows participants to both train with others at the same level as well as experience the challenge of training with a slightly higher skilled player.
Our flexible curriculum allows players to join Group Instruction at any time of the year, and move ahead at their own pace based on skill level. Players can demonstrate their readiness to advance into higher skill level groups by attaining a qualifying USATT rating level, or in some unique instances, based upon a coach’s recommendation.
Not sure where you might fit in? Interested players can contact our Center to arrange a complimentary skills assessment with a coach to determine the most appropriate Group Instruction level for them to enter.
