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!
August ATTA League Summary
Despite Hurricane Harvey in late August early September, League attendance has been steady. Several large ratings gains have been made last August in ATTA's Monday and Wednesday League with four players gaining 100+ points.
League has been an excellent way to get in some competition without the pressure of playing at at USATT Sanctioned event. If you haven't played in Monday or Wednesday night league, check it out by speaking to the front desk and registering before 6:30PM on league nights!
