A Note From Coach Ken:
My name is Kenneth Beauchamp. I have a long history when it comes to table tennis . I started playing when I was a fireman in Austin in 1972. It took 3 years but I
soon became the best table tennis player in the fire department. We had very good players in the AFD back then some would have been USATT rated around 2000.
I started playing tournaments around 1976 and played until 1980 when I had a 10 year hiatus.
In 1990 I started back playing and was instrumental in starting the Austin Table Tennis club . When I was younger I was very competitive and always had to win, but when I came back to play I mainly wanted to help others and grow the sport. I have been to many coaching clinics across the United States from Dallas , Las Vegas , the Olympic Training center , Oklahoma , and many others.
I am a Certified Regional Level table tennis coach by the USATT , a ITTF certified coach, and a level 4 AAU certified coach(positive coaching). I coached at the ATTC for more than 10 years. I am certified to coach up to level 2250 and
I have coached all levels of players from beginners to advanced. I have run many clinics for youth and adults.
My current USATT rating is 1869 , though I haven't played a tournament in a couple of years. I would like to be your coach and help all to improve and to enjoy the sport of Table Tennis.
