Hurricane Harvey
Earlier this month Hurricane Harvey made a direct hit on the Texas coast affecting many of our friends in the Corpus Christi and Houston areas.

Corpus Christi TTC closed to host displaced families and aid workers.  Houston Table Tennis Association experienced water damage affecting many parts of their club.  Floors, ceilings, and an A/C unit were damaged.  HTTA is in the process of making repairs; if you think you can offer assistance please talk to our front desk or contact them directly.  SATTC rescheduled their August 26-27 Summer Open to September 30- October 1st because of the potential flash flooding hazards.

Please send your support to our neighboring clubs!
