Learn about the importance and pitfalls of recognition
In the table tennis world, giving players recognition is very important. I think it is great when tournaments have an award podium and make the awards ceremony very official. The Samson Dubina Table Tennis Academy will be promoting more and more recognition in the sport as we continue to grow. However, some players only play for the recognition from others. IF THIS IS YOUR MINDSET, IT WILL HINDER YOUR PROGRESS!!!
We are thrilled to be opening the NEW Samson Dubina Table Tennis Academy! Until we open, we will be continuing our Monday classes and Thursday leagues at the Shaw JCC. From May 2nd onward, we will be open Monday-Saturday at the new location.
From now through April 25th Shaw JCC 750 White Pond Dr. Akron, Ohio
Starting May 2nd NEW Samson Dubina TT Academy 2262 South Arlington Rd Akron, Ohio
In just a few short weeks, we will be done with training in Samson's basement and completely moved in to the NEW Samson Dubina Table Tennis Academy! Join us this year for some excellent tournaments and summer camps for all ages and levels!!!
In this blog, I will be outlining five vital steps in a peaking for a tournament 30 days from now.
#1 Same Equipment
Every time you change equipment, it takes 2-3 weeks to fully adjust. During those 2-3 week, your game will go down slightly. Make sure that you keep using the same rubber, blade, glue, and shoes during those final 30 days before your big event.
The Samson Dubina Table Tennis Academy would like to thank our dedicated sponsors who support our camps and tournanments throughout the year. Please support these companies as they partner with us to grow table tennis here in Ohio. Presper Financial Architects
