Table tennis fans of all ages and experiences are invited to participate in a local tournament next weekend.
News Release from Spokane Table Tennis:
Many Spokane area table tennis players are expected for the Spokane Table Tennis monthly tournament next week as they prepare for a major national tournament being held in Spokane in mid-October. The monthly STT tournament is September 28 at the North Park Racquet Club, located at 8121 N. Division in Spokane. The fun competition is open to everyone and registration is just $10, according to Lisa Hagel, STT Manager.
“We’ve had such great participation in our tournaments, and now the major national tournament held here in Spokane with $10,000 in prize money is less than a month away,” Mrs. Hagel exclaimed.
Cash awards are also provided to the winners in the Spokane Table Tennis tournament divisions and advance registration is strongly encouraged through: www.spokanetabletennis.com emailing Mrs. Hagel at email@example.com or calling 768-1780. Warm-up play is at 11:00 and the STT tournament begins at noon.
“Lisa Hagel and our Spokane Table Tennis organization were responsible for proposing that a national, 4-star table tennis tournament be held in Spokane, according to John Trevethan, president of STT. “Thanks to her diligent efforts, Spokane residents will be able to see top, Olympic competitors October 12/13 at the HUB Sports Center in Liberty Lake.”
The national “2013 Spokane Ultimate” table tennis tournament is a part of the Joola five city North American Tour. It is being hosted by North American Table Tennis and the Spokane Sports Commission. The entry deadline is September 27 and information is available at the Spokane Table Tennis site: spokanetabletennis.com or at natabletennis.com.
All table tennis enthusiasts can also play in a special Recreational Tournament at the HUB on Sunday, October 13.
“This allows players to watch the highest ranked players as well as play for fun in the Recreational Tournament,” Trevethan explained. “Kind of like being able to watch Nadal play Federer in a U.S. Open Tennis Final, and then the next day getting to play a match on the same court yourself.”
Registration for the Sunday recreational tournament is limited to the first 32 entries, which costs $28.
