This Sunday there will be a FREE COACHING CLINIC held by Koen Vandecaveye from Belgium. He is close with Jean Michelle Saive a world class player for many years. The clinic will be from 1:30pm to 3:00pm. We have room for a maximum of 12 players. We already have 7 already signed up so we have room for 5 more. Let me know without delay if you would like to participate?
****** ONLY 2 SPOTS LEFT! *******
San Diego Table Tennis will host our annual picnic this September 13, 2014 from 11:30am – 2:30pm. We will also have a rummage sale at that time for people to trade old rackets, rubber and any other ping pong items. Please attend, bring a dish of some cultural interest to reflect our internationally diverse membership. We will also raffle off some prizes (still to be determined).
New Club Shirts from JOOLA will also go on sale now. The Board has decided to sell these great shirts at $20 a piece.
A Friday Night inter-club Competition is going to begin between Sorrento Valley and BPAC. We will rotate venues. If you are interested in competing please contact me, James Kahn. Earl Alto and I will be forming commensurate teams. A variety of playing levels will be matched.
Our Joola tables are heavy and need 2 people to open (by pulling the chord and pulling the table down) and likewise 2 people to close it. They are heavy tables and need a little muscle to work with so please ask for help in setting up and taking down.
Secondly, I want suggestions on how to make Friday nights more popular at the club. We have had league play in the past, doubles night or maybe some regular training sessions. It would be nice to get more women involved in table tennis, so perhaps ladies night free?? Talk to me or any other board member and let us fill the club with an enthusiastic crowd.
James Kahn, Chairman SDTTA
