Mid Hudson Valley Table Tennis Club (MHVTTC)
'If you don't know the difference between table tennis and ping pong, you've been playing ping pong.'
Players are expected to bring their own paddles, but we will provide the balls. Shopping for table tennis equipment can be a daunting task to newcomers who can easily become overwhelmed by the countless choices available. I'm more than happy to help if you require assistance deciding what would be good for your game.
Those just starting out soon learn it isn't possible to purchase professional quality equipment at local sporting goods stores, despite the fact this equipment 'looks the same'. Of course ordering online presents its own set of challenges, primarily the inability to try before you buy. Every blade and every rubber is marketed and described in such a manner as to lead buyers to believe it will undoubtedly improve their game, so purchasing often turns into an expensive guessing game.
I stock some gear which can be purchased directly at the club. For those who aren't quite sure what their needs are this is an excellent opportunity to actually see or play with something before you spend your $. I can also special order certain items you may be interested in.
