    It was a pleasure to see you playing table tennis and showing us all your skills.  Just remember the Equal Challenge Tournament gives beginner players a unique advantage against their more experienced competitors.  Our custom points system allows beginners to advance confidently, while at the same time giving seasoned pros the opportunity to flex their skills.  This is an excellent and unique method for new players to gauge their aptitude, build confidence and focus on progress.

    With two groups of four players and one group of five players the night started with awesome rallies in each group.
