he first step is to find more players interested in starting a club. Some good ways of doing this include:

  • The names on the check-out cards in table tennis books at the public library.
  • Response to posters put up at the YMCA, college union, community center, high school, and sporting goods stores.
  • The sports editor of the local newspaper. There may have been a club in your town at one time, and he may remember some of the players.

Keep in mind that many successful clubs have started with only three or four inexperienced players. However, the more people you can involve, the more fun you can have.
