      Open play + robot, available on Saturday and Sunday, when there seems to be the most foot traffic, so might be a waiting time for robot use.

      If I was a start up business with my own facility, I wouldn't have it closed, Wednesday Thursday and Friday. I would hire a part time, probably tt player, to open the facility for open play.

      Google search, time link, shows presently closed those days.

      Latest Hours

      Mon Tues 5-10 pm
      Wed Thurs Friday closed but not sure
      Sat Sun 930 am - 300 pm

      Closed 4th and 5th Sat and Sun of a month

      These are different types of hours than I have seen for most tt training places. This is not a recreation center but a rented facility 24/7 I think. I don't think it is shared with another sport club.

      Suggest go to the website or call before going there if not sure if they're open.

      An idea for this club, since the owner was Usatt Volunteer Coach of the Year for 2018 and the metro has a higher minority population than the national average and there is 3 days when the club is closed:

      I suggest getting another coach, maybe give him free membership, for help in giving free lessons to minority kids in poverty who can't afford to pay. There are a lot of good potential young athletes here with a chance to positively influence their lives and to introduce them to the sport of tt.

      Arktta, with the above idea, has a great opportunity to affect the Usatt Hopes Camp for youth in Little Rock which had only 12 particpants in February 2019.

      Another idea, to coincide with Arktta volunteer work and Usatt Hopes Youth Camps in Little Rock which only had 12 participants in Feb 2019, they could do volunteer coaching at local Boys Clubs.

      New hours, per a Google search, just now.

      Friday Closed
      Saturday 10AM–5PM
      Sunday 10AM–5PM
      Monday 6–9:30PM
      Tuesday Closed
      Wednesday Closed
      Thursday Closed

      Seems like a waste, with limited hours, for this 1st Class Facility.

      New league formed, starting June 30, 2019.

      Structured like the past T2 APAC pro league, except with a minimum of 2 players on a team.

      Only 6 teams entered, maybe they get more participation if started during the fall or winter.

      6 teams in any US city is a damned better start than most. I wouldn't be disappointed to start like that. It has potential.

      This metro used to have 3 leagues, A B & C with 7-10 teams in each. The current league is a combination of A B & C players. Combined rating of 2 players 3400 under. One team has a 2336 tournament rated and the other player a 903 league rated.

      I can't find any new league results at their website, to start June 30, league format based on the T2Diamond Pro League. It should be interesting to see the results with this type of league.

      Hello, thank you all for the posts about Arkansas Table Tennis Academy. Sorry to just now see this thread...a friend showed it to me today during our training sessions. We have our 3rd team league competition tomorrow. Results of all 3 competitions and current standings will be posted to the website soon.

      My hours are limited at academy because I have full time job and also another part time job, but the academy is building on my dream to grow table tennis in Arkansas and to offer opportunities to many players, including kids who might not otherwise have opportunity to enjoy benefits of table tennis like I did as a kid. It is going slow, but it is always making some progress and still manageable for me.

      Before opening the academy in December 2018, I was also coaching at Little Rock Table Tennis Club and organized the 2019 Hopes Little Rock camp for first time ever in Arkansas.

      I hope I can give you some more academy updates in this thread. If you have some questions or suggestions (as I have already read some in this thread), please do share your thoughts

      Thanks!!!

      One method used by tt training clubs for children:

      The children go after school to the club for training, during the period there they use 1 hour or more for doing homework. The parents pick them up anytime between 6:30-8:00 pm.

      All the big-time TT gyms kid development centers have space for the kids to do that homework/study/goof-off stuff... so glad to see AK getting in on that action.
