The UBC Table Tennis Club hosted an invitational tournament for High Schools on February 9th, 2020.
Jane Yan from the organizing committee said: “This tournament was actually hosted for the first time. We were all very pleased and happy with the big turn out. Together with Vincent Liu, Angelo Au and other executive members, we successfully attracted the majority of high schools (10 schools) that regularly participated in the official provincial high school championship. Although the organization process was challenging, the experience was incredibly rewarding and encouraging.
We invited most high schools from the Lower Mainland, many of which signed up in hopes that the event would serve as good practice for the provincial high school championships. As the tournament was a pilot tournament that was only 1-day long, we made the decision to just have the teams and open singles events. “
So great to see University students hosting events like this, keeping Table Tennis throughout their studies and helping younger generations to get involved.
