Carlos Zeller

I was born in Argentina. Started to play table tennis at the age of 13 and never stopped enjoying the game. I got a master’s degree in industrial engineering. In 1992 I joined the Broward Table Tennis Club which was founded a year earlier. After a few years, although I was not a member of the board I started to run the place. We moved around a few times till in 2005 we rented a warehouse in Hollywood and became a full time club. Three years later we bought a building where we stayed for 6 years till 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. We are bringing children from different countries to better themselves as players and we are committed to make sure that everyone has fun from the beginner to the professional players
