Austin Table Tennis Club located at within the AAA Storage Unit at 8956 Research Boulevard, has been called one of the top table tennis facilities in the United States. Former table tennis star Yang Yu and Para-Olympic athlete Masoud Mojtahed coach Austinites of all ages on the 18 tables on site.

The coaches say it's a great sport because you can play year round. It's also one the disabled community can participate in. Yu and Masoud say they've trained players in wheel chairs and even children with Austism and Aspergers. They're currently trying to spread the word that Table Tennis can be a fantastic therapy for someone with developmental disabilities because it works on cognitive skills.
