Meet Coach Nishaad

Table Tennis has been an integral part of my life, and I believe that being an individual sport, it teaches you a lot about accountability, self-improvement, confidence, and more than anything else, it teaches you how to deal with a loss and bounce back better than before. My aim is to work towards making this a sport not only for leisure but also a way to stay fit and active while learning core principles that define a professional athlete and the winning mindset.
