Harvard Table Tennis Club
We exist to provide Harvard-affiliated individuals with opportunities to play table tennis. We have no attendance policy, and players of all levels are welcome! We do some training, some games, some coaching, some tournaments — a little bit of everything to help build Harvard’s table tennis community.
Getting started is easy. Simply sign up for the club mailing list to stay updated and show up at any of the club’s practices (times and location listed below). A club officer will be present to show you the ropes.
Practices are held twice a week during Harvard’s academic semesters. Practices are not held during summer/winter break or on public holidays.
2:00pm – 4:00pm
4th Floor, Malkin Athletic Center, 39 Holyoke Street, Cambridge MA
Note that HUID is required for building access
8:15pm – 9:45pm
The Harvard Table Tennis Club is proud to be coached by Yutian Wang, founder and Head Coach of Origin Table Tennis Academy in New York. Coach Wang has consistently ranked among the top players in the United States, and has over 20 years of professional table tennis experience (including 8 years as a table tennis coach).
All club members are eligible for free coaching.
Players may attend 3 free practices each year prior to becoming a club member. Club members enjoy various privileges such as:

Eligibility for competition teams
Club membership fees are $10/semester for Harvard undergraduate students and $20/semester for all other Harvard affiliates.
The Harvard Table Tennis Club is a member of the National Collegiate Table Tennis Association (NCTTA) and participates in NCTTA intercollegiate tournaments. Each year, spots are available in the following competitive teams:
Co-ed A Team (4-6 players)
Women’s Team (4-6 players)
Up to three B Teams (4-5 players each)
Depending on interest, tryouts may be held at the start of the academic year (usually in October). All club members are eligible to participate in tryouts.
Outside of NCTTA tournaments, Harvard’s competition teams also participate in friendly matches with other Boston-area schools throughout the year.
