Join the Harding Table Tennis club and you'll be particiapting in the world's most popular racket sport! Harding Table Tennis is a club (girls & boys) that is open to everyone, we meet either in the cafeteria or the field house. We play other schools, participate in a state championship, and occasionally travel outside of Minnesota to play.
The Table Tennis Club meets all year long. There are four distinct seasons.
Any sport is meant to be fun, challenging, team building, and good exercise; Table Tennis fits all of these categories. Also, participating in a school sponsored after school program, sports or art is proven to increase grades and graduation rates. St. Paul Harding competes against other schools from Moundsview to Rochester, from East Ridge to Orono, and many schools in between. This broadens the community that Harding students are a part of, through competition and friendships. Also, St. Paul Harding Table Tennis partners with Table Tennis Minnesota, and the United States Table Tennis Association; these partnerships provide opportunity for lifelong participation in the sport.
St. Paul Harding Table Tennis has been the most participated in club in all of St. Paul Public Schools. The Team has finished tied for 5th in Minnesota twice, 2014 and 2013. In 2013, the team was invited to a Tri-State Tournament held in Rockford, Ill. Teams from Illinois, Wisconsin, and Minnesota played. St. Paul Harding finished 4thin that tournament. In 2015, the Girls of St. Paul Harding was the consolation Champions.
