The Pasadena Table Tennis Club has been in existence since 1999.
It is a club dedicated primarily to the fun and development of table tennis. At Pasadena you can take the sport as seriously as you want:

You can come in with a group of friends for an evening of pong. We have a friendly atmosphere and welcome players of all levels.
We enjoy a truly multicultural environment with visitors from all parts of the globe. There is always someone to play with.
You can borrow club paddles and balls, if you don't have your own. Where else can you have this much fun for $6 for the whole evening?

If you want to improve your skills, you can get organized coaching by Wei Wang.
Pasadena and the Westside Club are among the only places in the US where you can get direct instruction from a US Champion and Olympian.

We do not have a challenge system, so you have a free choice of partners. If you're new, we help pair you up.
When it's busy, we take half-hour turns.


At the Pasadena Club, you can get top quality tournament rackets, which are not available in sporting goods stores.

We sell table tennis ball machines, tables, rackets, rubber, shoes, balls and accessories.

We also sell instructional and competition DVDs.
