On Sunday May 5, The AITTA league "C" team tournament was held at the Duran Youth Center in Sherwood, Arkansas. Congratulations to LRTTC board member Jeff Pratt and his teammate John Miller on a superb first place finish!

Concluding play for the 2012-2013 AITTA league is the "A", "B", and "C" singles tournaments. The tournament schedule is:

"B" tournament (non-sanctioned): Friday night, May 17 at 7:30pm.
"C" tournament (sanctioned): Saturday, May 18 at 9am.
"A" tournament (sanctioned): Sunday, May 19 at 1pm.

On one of the following weekends, the annual league banquet may be held. Details are forthcoming.

On the LRTTC front, the club received a fresh shipment of Nittaku 40 mm regular and premium balls. We also sold for $75 one of the gray Stiga tables that was previously donated to the club. With a commitment of a $25 donation, we only need to raise $100 more in donations to be able to pick 10 more used barriers from Austin during the weekend of June 15. If you would like to contribute to help us meet that goal, please visit our Donate page and make an investment in the club. Later this summer we will be requesting donations to allow the club to purchase at least 2 more Giant Dragon tables from Austin Table Tennis Club in mid-September.

But wait, we have more exciting news to announce.

This website has a new Lessons page which describes the fees for lessons offered by LRTTC's certified ITTF Level 1 and USATT State Level coach. Thirty minute and one hour lessons are available on Saturday mornings. To inquire by phone, call Mike at 501-291-3142 or send an email to the club at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Lessons may also be offered on Tuesday and Thursday nights. Advance arrangements will allow us to better prepare for the lessons.

LRTTC is pleased to announce regular monthly tournaments to begin on Saturday June 8 and to continue on the second Saturday of every month. We plan to mix up the tournament formats for each month and to offer cash prizes like we did for our Feb 2013 handicap tournament which generated a lot of positive feedback. Entry fees will be discounted for active LRTTC subscribers. Stay tuned for more details by email and on the website.

Lastly, the Arkansas Open is being sponsored by AITTA and takes place at University of Arkansas at Little Rock in the Donaghey Student Center on Saturday, September 21, 2013. More details and entry form will be posted here at a later date.

Cheers!

Saturday, April 27, 2013 - High School Tournament

It was LRTTC's honor today, April 27, 2013, to host a junior tournament for two local high schools:  Little Rock Central High School versus Pulaski Academy.

Here is a summary of the tournament contributed by one of the high school student organizers:

"The two high school teams had groups playing best of three matches to eleven points. Three players of each team were divided into "Group 1" and "Group 2". The winner of both groups determined the winning school. Pulaski Academy won the "Group 1" match-up and it was down to "Group 2" to decide whether Pulaski Academy won or a tie-break was needed. In the final matches of the tournament,  Avinash Arulmurugu, Abrar Matin and Moiz Mandani (Central High) played Dev Nair (Pulaski Academy) to determine the fate of the tournament. Dev won two of his three matches. After the arduous competition, Pulaski Academy emerged victorious with 10 overall match wins to Central High's 8."
