Check out these excerpts from an article by Charles Redfield in a special to the Kansas City Star!
“Table tennis, or as it is sometimes called, ping pong, is not a highly visible sport in the
United States, but there is a local place to play for fans of the sport — the Overland
Park Table Tennis Club. It is located in The Athletic Club of Overland Park at 104th and Marty.
Originally, it was the Kansas City Table Tennis Club, with sessions two or times a week
starting in the mid 1970s to 2008. The club changed its name and location when its
lease was not renewed at the North Kansas City Community Center.”
“The club has players from all over the world. Members include players from China,
India, Russia, Poland, Puerto Rico, Nepal, Vietnam, Iran, Malaysia and Nepal. The club
is an aliate member of the United States Association of Table Tennis”
“There are also two to four tournaments a year that attract players from Kansas,
Missouri, Oklahoma and Nebraska. The tourneys attract all different skill levels, and
there are men’s, women’s and juniors divisions, where players can compete in singles
and doubles for money and trophies.”
We love our Overland Park table tennis community and are glad they can call The Athletic Club home. Stop by today to see our facility and find out more! You can also call Laura Bollinger for more information at 913-669-1858.
