Update with Tournament Report:

This Saturday marked the 4th monthly table tennis tournament.  With 9 final entries, the format was a 9-player consolation bracket using the custom brackets available at www.printyourbrackets.com. 

Congratulations to Mike Lauro (LRTTC's certified coach and treasurer) for taking first place.  The top 4 places were:

  • Mike Lauro - first
  • Scott Barone - second
  • John Falco - third
  • Kedar Jambhekar - fourth

The club took in $55 in entry fees.  First and second place players donated their prize money back to the club, so the club ended up with $55 profit.

Thanks to everyone who played on Saturday, and to those who helped setup and take down.  LRTTC extends its deep appreciation for everyone's support.

Our next tournament is Saturday, November 9, 2013.  We may have a doubles tournament or a singles handicap tournament.

So that we can continue to track the results of our tournaments and players' USATT club ratings, the LRTTC website has a couple of new additions.  Under the Play menu, the "Club Ratings" link provides an explanation of the process used to maintain the ratings, as well as current player club ratings.  The other link "Club Match Results & Rating History" provides a history of results for all of our tournaments and club matches.

Sorry, but we don't have any photos of the tournament yet.  However, there was some video take and we may be able to get some screenshots from the video and post them here. This page will be updated when that happens.
