Hello! My name is Ben Larcombe, I’m 28 years old, and I’m a professional table tennis coach based in Tunbridge Wells.
I’ve been involved in table tennis as a player and coach for almost 20 years! Highlights include; living and training at Grantham College Table Tennis Academy (2007-09), becoming a full-time table tennis coach (in 2011), and reaching a career-high England men’s ranking of #123 (in 2013).
I also have a degree in Coaching and Sport Science from Nottingham Trent University. The title of my final dissertation was The Role of Deliberate Practice on Table Tennis Expertise.
