Meet Coach Grant

I’ve I’ve been playing table tennis for most of my life and I believe it’s one of the most dynamic and creative sports out there. One-on-one coaching is something I’ve had lots of experience with in the past and I enjoy developing tailored plans to help students improve and reach their goals.
