JERSEY CITY, N.J. — A former U.S. Olympian has opened another table tennis club in New Jersey.

NJ.com reports Wang Chen recently opened Wang Chen Table Tennis Club in Jersey City. Chen opened her first club in 2004 in New York City after becoming frustrated with the management at a facility she had trained at. Last year, the Olympian opened a second club in Westwood, New Jersey.

Chen, who competed in the 2008 Olympics, started playing table tennis when she was 7 years old. By the time she was 11, she had started playing professionally.

Chen’s Jersey City club will host an afterschool program that educates children about table tennis. The club will also offer memberships, training programs and tournaments.
