The 3rd Seattle City Championships table tennis tournament will be held the weekend of October 23 and 24 at the Green Lake Community Center. This will be our largest tournament to date. There will be over $500 in prize money, $1700 worth of table tennis merchandise awards from Killerspin (rubber sheets and DVDs), and trophies provided by the Seattle Pacific Table Tennis Club. As in past years, we will have several events for juniors. This year we will have two special spectator  events.

7 pm on Saturday 10/23 – High School Championship final, and Open Doubles final
3 pm on Sunday, 10/24 – Under 14 Years Championship final, and Open Singles final

Admission to the spectator events is $2 each day, but free to participants and their families. There will be a coaching table where spectators and participants can connect with Seattle area coaches, and a players lounge with table tennis videos playing all weekend.

We will have 15 different open, rated, and age group events. Two of these events have been designed especially for new players. The U-1200 event has a low $5 entry fee, for those who are not yet sure of how much fun they are going to have. The U-1000 event is our lowest rated event. The format will be a double round robin. In the first round, you will play players who might not be at your level. In the second round, you will play players from the other first round groups who had the same record of wins and losses as you. This way, you will get to play with other players who are roughly at your level.

Entries must be received by October 19 ($5 late fee). Please download the entry form from www.glttc.com/3rdSeattleCityChampionships2010EntryFinal1.pdf. Information is available at info @ glttc.com or the Green Lake Community Center, (206) 684-0780.

Kids Ping Pong Program at Green Lake

Kids are invited to a kids ping pong program Saturday at 5:15-6:30 at the Green Lake community center.  The goal of this program is to create a community of kids focussed on fun, learning, and cooperation.  It is not a star development program, though technical skill development plays its role.  Kids from 8-10 are the target population; older kids are welcome in groups.  Announcement flyer: www.tomveatch.com/tt/KidPong/index.htm
