Great job to all the Samson Dubina Table Tennis Academy players who competed in the Steel City Open.  In the 89 player tournament, the SDTTA players won 33% of all the trophies and 46% of all the prize money.  Keep working hard!

My Career

Dear Table Tennis Community,
Thanks so much for supporting my table tennis playing career through my gofundme account.  Training for the Olympic trials was a great experience and I learned much along the way.  Now that the Olympic trials is over, I'm going to continue full-time in table tennis coaching, promoting the sport, as well as competing.  Today, I just won the Erie PA Open coming back from down 0-2 in games and down match point in the 4th.  I'm excited to continue playing tournaments this year in preparation for the US Nationals in July.

Personalized Programs

Weekly Group Classes
For the weekend clinics, we usually have a theme for the weekend such as strokes, footwork, tactics, serving, etc… and each player will do similar drills throughout the weekend that are level appropriate all geared toward the topic for the weekend.
On Tuesday evening, the kids group class goes from 6-7:30pm and the teen/adult group class goes from 7:30-9pm.  For the kids, I’ll be personalizing training programs for them in the future.  But for now, most of the kids are doing similar drills.
