The Athletic Club of Overland Park hosted another series of successful table tennis tournaments in Kansas City during the first weekend of May. They had over 65 players come in from all over the Midwest region to attend the non-sanctioned event. Open Singles, U-1800 Singles, U-1200 (Novice) Singles, Hard Bat Singles, and Open Double players really brought their “A Game” to the table as they competed for cash prizes and coveted bragging rights. Elimination rounds were brutal, but everyone involved had a ball.
