We were featured on the front page of the Seattle Times “Lifestyle” section on Sunday, October 24, and we had over 100 paid spectators in addition to the players and family members for the 3 pm finals “show” on Sunday. There were about 20 volunteers and we received sponsorship from Seattle Parks and Recreation, the Green Lake Advisory Council, Killerspin, the Seattle Pacific Table Tennis Club, the Northwest Senior Games, Paddle Palace, Hyun Lee, and Phil & Karen Lam. Thank you to everyone who participated, watched and helped out.

The 3 pm finals events began with the Under 14 Singles. Michael Zhao took first over runner-up, Kevin Li. This was followed by a exhibition between 11 year old, Reda Ali, and 87 year old Gene Treneer. James Qiao defeated Jenny Zhao with a score of 4 to 1 to take the Seattle City Champion singles title.
