"Lessons Only Experience Can Teach". "We are not big, but we are definitely good"

- Advertise for sponsorship
I- Introduce local International, World Games, National/state and local champions to the community
- Attract neighborhood and local members.

- Long-term survival of this "awesome" sport.

The mission of Coach Lloyd and Lone Star Table Tennis (LSTT) is to eventually provide Summer Camps, demonstrations, exhibitions/clinics, after school, daytime adult, and summer organizational certifications for boys and girls in
“A Sport for All Seasons.” Table tennis claims to be the world’s fastest racket sport and is the second most played sport only to soccer. The benefit of this sport unfortunately, escapes most non-serious and many serious players. It is said to take a minute to learn and a lifetime to master. I can testify to this. After over 35 years of studying and playing this sport, I have specific strategies, techniques, and mental tactics to develop serious minded players.
All schools have students that excel in some extracurricular activity, why not table tennis? Table tennis demands your whole body participates, pays attention, and responds to being challenged. We will train you to use your "whole body", mind, and spirit in a positive, healthy manner, pleasing to spiritual growth. We want corporate, small business, communities, the education community, and especially, girls and boys to take advantage of the talent in the North Dallas area. We plan to adopt a school or community group in the community area and focus on our training on the diversity in cultures. Our knowledge base site is United States Association Table Tennis. Please contact us for more information.
My recent trips to the 2015, 2014, 2012 and 2011 Huntsman World Senior Games in St. George, Utah and Texas State Senior Games in San Antonio were rewarding. My total 5 Golds, 5 Silvers and 2 Bronze in Men's Doubles Mixed Doubles and Men's Singles. I also qualified for Minneapolis, MN, July 2015 for the National Senior Olympics. A program such as LSTT will be helping youth gain confidence, leadership skills, and a sense of responsibility through competitive play, independence, stamina, coordination, focus, and problem-solving. This Olympic sport demands practice, concentration, dedication, and awareness. I can't think of another sport (except school) that requires the extent of quick thinking, accurate perception, and corrective action as table tennis. This is due, I think, in part to the area of place, the speed of play, the mental requirements, and the fore and after thought requirements. If I seem a little egotistical about this sport, deservedly so, I have spent over 35 years studying the mechanics and academics of table tennis and I believe it to be the ultimate secret weapon for good fitness, health, and age deterrent. We encourage and invite girls, boys, teens, adults, organizations, and corporate entities for sessions with our machines. I challenge you to watch this awesome sport in action. I am currently coordinating with Allen Recreation Center for future training.
