Today we’d like to introduce you to Yung Kim.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
Our e4Hats Table Tennis Club first opened in summer 2014. Table Tennis is one of Olympics’ Summer Sports, but most people don’t really have a chance to overlook this sport. Table tennis is beneficial in so many ways such as improving coordination and balance, developing mental acuity, burning calories, and keeping your brain sharp. So, we wanted to introduce more people to table tennis by opening a ping pong community in Fullerton. Since table tennis equipment is relatively simple and inexpensive, young and old people can enjoy this sport as a hobby or to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Our goal was to provide a clean and friendly table tennis facility for anyone to come and enjoy playing.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Our e4Hats Table Tennis club currently holds a majority of Asian members in their late 40s to 60s since this sport is popular in Asia, particularly in China, Japan, and Korea. We are trying to gather a diverse group of people participate in our table tennis community through advertisements and by word of mouth. Also, we launched a table tennis summer camp/after school program for students to provide a chance for the younger generation to be part of our table tennis club. This summer program turned out to be a huge success for students who were occupied by learning and staying healthy during the summer.

If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
If we were to open our e4Hats Table Tennis Club differently again, we would have expanded our facility in size to allow for more available tables and coaches. Also, we would have started more local and national tournaments earlier to provide a chance for table tennis players and fans from different places to come together and enjoy.
