ATTC Player Profiles 

Tim Aquino


Club co-founder and initial president. I am a Bay Area transplant residing in Meadow Vista. I am a retired corporate controller and have been playing table tennis on and off for many years. I enjoy the pace of the game and the camaraderie of the players. Other interests include travel, tennis, woodworking, remodeling our home and an occassional poker game.

Matthew Blom


Put a racket in his hand, and Matthew is a happy guy. From Tennis to Badminton to Pickleball he spends most of his week just trying to not screw up his technique going from one sport to the other. What he loves about Table Tennis is coming out to play hard, get challenged, hang out with great people, and let everything else in his week fade away to let an orange plastic ball become the most important thing in the universe for a few hours.

Michael Forrest Carlson


I live in Auburn and have been playing table tennis for a long time. Besides the exercise, I enjoy the game since it provides the opportunity to “Crush” the ball. Aslo enjoyable is the need to often react without thinking. I also enjoy snow boarding, mountain biking and antique textiles.

Greg Cehan


Club co-founder and initial vice president. I live in Meadow Vista and for 24 yrs have had a private practice in Ear, Nose and Throat. I have enjoyed starting the club and watching it grow. Other interests include snowboarding, cycling, unicyling, tennis, swimming, running, trampoline, in-line skating, canoeing, hiking, singing, dancing and reading.

Micah Chavez



I live in Nevada city and have been playing Table Tennis for 4 years. I find that one of the factors in improving my game comes from playing the very different styles of many of my opponents. I also enjoy baseball, soccer, softball and cycling.

Rick Close



I live in Auburn and employed by Davey Tree as a certified arborist. I have played table tennis, off and on, for 25 years. I also enjoy golf, sailing and helping with my daughter’s sports.

Grant Connell



This is "the" great family sport. I enjoy the game very much. Very good exercise!

Mark Copeland



I currently live in Sacramento with my wife and son. I am a native Californian, born in Fresno and living mostly in the Bay area where I graduated from U.C. Berkeley. I have been playing Table Tennis between 4 and 5 years, during which I have been able to play in 4 USATT National tournaments.

Debraj "Dave" Ganguly


Hi this is Debraj Ganguly. To avoid gender confusion (from being called Debra J Ganguly), I go by 'Dave'. I am a material science engineer turned Director of IT Marketing .... but my passion with materials makes me a perfect table tennis EJ (Equipment Junnkie). yeah feel free to ask me, read my online reviews on table tennis rubbers and blades. Playing table tennis since I was 13 ... with a brief pause of about 20 years :) . Lucky to have trained under a national coach in india, but didn't muster enough skill up to put them into action and beat the superb ATTC players. Hope to reach 2000 rating, within next 25-30 years. :) While I play in many clubs, ATTC is awesome, ....the best managed, and the friendliest one.

Chebu Herrick



I reside in Auburn and am a Placer County employee. I have been playing Table Tennis for about a year and enjoy the friendly competition and camaraderie. Other interests include running and soccer.

Bill Indreboe



I was born and raised in Oakland, Ca and now live in rural unincorporated Placer County above Auburn. I started playing table tennis at the recreation center at a young age and the age of 49 (which I have been for less than 24 hours at time of this writing) I am still playing table tennis at a city recreation center, only this time in Auburn, Ca. I moved up here in 2003 with my wife, 2 sons, 2 dogs and 7 indoor cats to engage in one of my favorite hobbies - fishing. Most of my leisure time is spent either fishing, working in the yard where I raise Xmas trees (for fun, friends and family) or doing things with the great new friends we've met up in the area, many from the table tennis club.

Bill Kochenderfer



I am a two year resident of Auburn. After 25 years, including a 20 year break, I am still trying to successfully return loops. It has been a great pleasure to meet the Auburn players and restart my game.

Madison Kochenderfer



I am living in Auburn and have been playing table tennis for a little longer than two years. I enjoy the game because it is such a good exercise for both the body and the intellect. I enjoy the Auburn club because the members of all skill levels are great to play with and we have such a nice place to play. I also enjoy art, softball, soccer, swimming, writing, reading, studying and dancing.

Anson Kwong



I live in Fremont and have been playing on-and-off for many years. I mainly like the game because of the speed. A great thing about the Auburn club is that it’s air conditioned in the summer. I also enjoy basketball and badminton.

Ron Mallory



I am a twenty three year resident of the Auburn area. I am currently selling real estate for Prudential Ca. Realty. Besides table tennis I also enjoy riding a Harley Davidson.
