Carlos Zeller is enthusiastic about passing along his love for table tennis to the next generation of players. He shares his table tennis experiences with his players, from beginners to professionals. Zeller said, “I started playing when I was thirteen years old… and now I’m seventy, so it’s been a long time with a racket in my hand.” When asked if table tennis was a lifestyle for him, he swiftly responded, “I eat, and I breathe table tennis.” His enthusiasm pairs well with his world-talent coaching staff.

With a club atmosphere that accepts everybody, there is no surprise Broward TTC is the table tennis hub for South Florida. Fourteen hundred players a year visit the club. The club accommodates USATT Hopes, Cadets, Mini-Cadets, and Juniors events.

Mr. Zeller previously stated, “I decided to build a state-of-the-art place to give South Florida the perfect place to learn, get better, and enjoy the sport.” Zeller continued, “We are bringing children from different countries to better themselves as players, and we are committed to making sure that everyone has fun from the beginner to the professional players.” Mr. Zeller has remained a beacon of the table tennis community in his devotion to support the growth of table tennis in America and the young players who visit his club.
