I understand your situation completely. Many years ago I was the high school tt champ but when I started at UNSW they froze me out because my standard was unfortunately too low, not having been technically coached - just relying on my fast reflexes and impromptu shots. It took me twenty years before I would be able gradually improve and be competitive against most of players at uni clubs.
Our club welcomes beginners and you would be able to play with many of our club members. If you received some tips or did our coaching program, coach expects that not only would you start matching your friends at work, you'd beat them so well after a year or two that unless there was a trained player there, you'd be kicked out of any work comp for being too good. This is not showboating, it's really the power of knowledge, or as I often tell my students, the woodcutter with the sharp axe will effortlessly chop down more trees than the exhausted woodcutter with a blunt axe.
This is a slight disadvantage of playing and improving table tennis at club level. Over time, you'd absorb efficient techniques and must improve after practising three hours per night; later on, playing with uncoached players at garage or work settings will result in little challenge. Many of our players come back from liner cruises with bagfuls of medals surreptitiously obtained through winning against guys who've never played comp. or know the proper rules.
