The hub for anything table tennis-related in Numabukuro, Kataoka has been in business since 1981, selling equipment, organising ping-pong classes for beginners, operating a junior team and so on. Held five days a week from 10am, said classes are open to anyone regardless of proficiency, cost ¥1,600 and require you to bring your own shoes and racket (or buy some at the shop, of course). If you need more specific advice from a professional coach, head over on Wednesday for a serious training session.
