Happy Lunar New Year- Year of the Dog- from ATTA!

2018 Austin Winter Open

A new year brings new winnings- Coach Shahin from ATTA took the finals 1st place by making quick work of his opponents with his service and serve receive game.  Coach Shahin is a member of the Iranian National Team, the ATTA coaching staff, and has international experience competing in ITTF events and the 2004 Olympics.  He used this experience to his advantage by creating easy openings for his aggressive play style and contained his opponent's offensive capabilities through sound handling of their serves.

There were other winners at the 2018 ATTA Winter Open with Clark Kim looping through opponents to a 196 rating point gain to top out at 1603; Lee Abraham taking advantage of the wide angles with 125 points to 1676; and our own President Masoud Mojtahed playing injured but smart, using his service and block to take 112 points to a final rating of 2005.

The January 20th tournament was one for the record books with 98 entries with over 300 matches played.  Eighteen of the twenty-seven possible awards went to ATTA members!  Thank you to Marguerite Cheung, the tournament staff and volunteers for running a smooth tournament; and congratulations to all that took home a trophy!

With so many entries the recent tournaments show that the tournament scene is getting more active, with more new players entering and several older players returning to the scene.  If you've been thinking about trying out a tournament, come in for a days worth of competition!
