Table Tennis (Ping-Pong) is a growing sport and the best of the best is here at The J! We have partnered with the professionals from the Samson Dubina Academy to offer classes and leagues at The J. Led by Samson Dubina himself, our programs offer instruction on proper table tennis technique, footwork, service serve return and game strategy. Classes and leagues offered Thursday and Monday evenings at The J.
Samson Dubina started table tennis at age 12 in Canton, Ohio. He trained hard and sharpened his skills for the next couple of years and became a training partner for the Olympic team of Canada from 2004-2007. Samson has competed in nearly 400 tournaments over the last 20 years. Currently Samson is training, competing in tournaments, coaching the top players in the state of Ohio, and is now coaching the top players in America as a US National Team Coach.
