Valuable Information:


Treasured secrets are more like it! After much discussion and near fist fights, we have decided to share some of our most honored tips about how to play the game. We decided that it is only fair to share our secrets with the world so they too are given the same opportunities that we were given. You may download, print and/or study them if you wish, but do not seek to profit from these secrets in any way. They must be used only for the good of the sport.

Cub Scouts Program:

During the 2002-2003 season, GMTTC had a partnership with a local Cub Scouts Troop. At the time it was only the second club in the nation to have such a program! Its success introduced many new kids to the game of Ping Pong. At its conclusion, each Cub Scout was given a certificate by GMTTC recognizing their understanding of the game and accomplishment.

Below is documentation of the program:
