2013 China Trip

The Moy Family traveled with NYTTA Representatives including T.J. Wang, Milwaukee Table Tennis Club (MTTC) Treasurer and NYTTF board member, Linda Leaf, President of the MTTC, Jim Zonoozi, MTTC vice president to China to take part in a pilot program which included a cultural tour and table tennis training.

Together, we headed on an 11-day trip, which included a two-day tour of Beijing followed by table tennis training which took place over five days for over six hours a day at the Cao Yanhua Table Tennis training School in Shanghai.

Hundreds of young students, ages 6-14, regularly attend Cao Yanhua’s table tennis training programs to practice at least 4 hours of table tennis daily plus a fitness regime including relays, stretching, etc.

Our group was also excited to have the opportunity to personally meet with and present a plaque on behalf of the NYTTA to Cao Yanhua herself.

One of the highlights of our Beijing visit was a special dinner we had with one of the most important figures in Chinese table tennis, Mr. Lu Yuansheng, vice president of the Chinese Table Tennis Association.
