Meet Coach Peter
Hi my name is Peter, and I am a professsional table tennis coach. I started playing table tennis at the age of seven in Lomza, Poland. When I started training, I immediately fell in love with the sport. At the age of twelve I began competing in the Polish National League against adults. I was ranked in the top cadet, the top juniors and the top adults in the country. I continued playing throughtout my teenage years in my home town club LKS Lomza. At the age of 18 I was invited to Olsztyn where I began to study at the local university. I was also invited to join a professional team AZS Olsztyn. As a college student in 1986 I was a silver medalist in the Collegiate Championships which took place in Rzeszow Poland.
However, my professional career was cut short due to an injury at age of 22.
Now, I live in United States and at this point of my career, I found that coaching has given me more pleasure than actually competing. I spent the last 15 years coaching at NJTTC in Westfield, NJ, where I helped many national top level juniors and cadets in the country. I was actively mentoring and coaching:
Six of my former students are current members of cadet and junior national team of USA.
