Two-time US Olympian Timothy Wang is set to start a new adventure as he relocates to California to take on a new role as the Director of ICC's Milipitas Table Tennis Center. Wang who was recently in China at the wedding of China's Grand Slam champion Li Xiaoxia returned to the US and headed for the coast. After the Rio Olympic Games, Wang started a new venture as he became part-owner of a new Table Tennis Club in Houston, HITTA. He then began an extramural college education and competed in last year's NCTTA championships where he reached the quarterfinals and also helped his team - Pillar College - place 5th in the co-ed team event.
Wang will be sure to find new ways to channel his passion for table tennis as he returns to a familiar place, one where he used to train as a professional full-time player. We wish Tim the best of luck in his new role and are sure he will contribute a lot to the center and table tennis in the area. You can read ICC's letter to members below:
'Dear ICC TT Center Members & Supporters,
As some of you are aware, our Table Tennis Center has developed into a major activity for ICC which is now hosted in a dedicated 20,000-sq. ft. facility in Milpitas supporting over several thousand players each year. During the past year, we have continued to introduce changes across all of ICC’s programs so as to ensure that we are relevant and serve the needs of our community.
As we begin to explore other opportunities for ICC, we take into consideration our current team members and identify those who can assist us with the expansion we are contemplating over the next three years to 2-3 new ICC locations. Towards this goal, we are delighted to announce the addition of Timothy Wang, a two-time past Olympian, a three-time US National Champion in Table Tennis, who had earlier trained with ICC and recently was part owner/operator of a TT Club in Houston. Timothy will join us on September 15th as the Director of the current Milpitas TT Center.
All of us have come to know Rajul Sheth, who has been with ICC since we introduced Table Tennis and has spearheaded this program to what it is today. Rajul’s dedication, drive and energy has been most visible at the center. We are promoting Rajul to the Executive Director position for the new ICC Cupertino/Sunnyvale location that he will help launch in 2018. During the next few months, Rajul will assist in the transition of all activities conducted at the Milpitas TT Center to Timothy.
Please join us in welcoming Timothy Wang to the ICC Team at the TT Center.
Thank you for your support to ICC
Anil Godhwani & Raj Desai'
