East Cobb Sports is excited to be hosting the 2021 US Nationals State Qualification Table Tennis Tournament for the great state of Georgia on February 27th and 28th. East Cobb Sports is a 10-table club located in the heart of Georgia equipped with world-class coaches.

Former Olympian, and now club owner at East Cobb Sports, Amy Feng said, “We are all excited... my players and my students are all excited. It’s the first time for the [State Qualifier] tournament, and since last year there was not much going on. The qualifying tournament is a good new idea to help develop players and especially our Jr. Players. That’s the base of our sport.”

Amy Feng is a highly decorated table tennis player. Feng was a 1996 US Olympian. She's a 4-time US Women’s Single Champion, a 4-time US Women’s Doubles Champion, and 4-time US Mixed Doubles Champion. With all her accomplishments as a player, Feng believes that all coaches willing to put in the time and effort to gain coaching experience have the opportunity to become a great coach.

Members from ages 7 to 80 will be participating in the Georgia State Qualifier at East Cobb Sports. They are drawn towards Amy Feng’s ability to reach students on a mental and physical level. Her philosophy that a person learns commitment and perseverance through sports is instilled in her students. She looks forward to their matches at the Georgia State Tournament as they continue to strive for success as they develop as players and people through table tennis.
