About Coach Yoku
My coaching career:
I am a club level USATT certified professional table tennis coach in St. Paul, Minnesota.
My coaching career started in 2008 at the "Kimyogar" sport school in Fergana, Uzbekistan. I worked together with my coaches from the table tennis school that I grew up and they guided me a lot during my early coaching career.
In 2011 I was hired as a Head of Junior Coaches at the Fergana Olympic Reserves Sport School. During my work at the school I held master classes for coaches, helped to organize National Championships and traveled with students to tournaments outside the state. My students have been awarded in National and Regional tournaments numerous times in Uzbekistan.
In 2015 I moved to USA and started my coaching career in Saint George, Utah. I gave private lessons and prepared my students to World Huntsman Games.
In 2018 I continued my coaching career together with Table Tennis MN club. I have been actively involved in different projects at TTMN, such as Kidz Pong, Kids clinic on Sundays or Intermediate adults clinic on Wednesdays. Currently I am accepting students of ages 5 and above.

My table tennis story:
I started playing table tennis when I was 14 years old. After going to summer camp and trying to play table tennis I could not stop thinking about playing it. I was late to join table tennis training center in Fergana, Uzbekistan, but I worked hard to catch up my age level players and soon I was part of the Fergana State team. Here is a quick highlight of my table tennis:
3rd place in women’s category at the International world table tennis tournament in Chicago,2019.
Silver medalist in team representing Fergana state at National Championship of Uzbekistan, 2008.
Third place in team of Fergana, at the National Championship “Cup of Uzbekistan” in 2008.
Third place in Women’s singles at the National Championship of Uzbekistan, 2006.
Bronze medalist in team representing Fergana state at the National High School Championship of Uzbekistan, 2006
