    Ping Pong Tournament Newport Beach

    Tony Kovacs and Hashim Zaman

    Amazing night!  With 15 players registered in the Equal Challenge, the night started with tight scores right after the first round began.

    The Equal Challenge goal is make you improve and play your best every single match, for we are always looking for more competition.  If you have not played the tournament lately you should.  Don’t lay down on the bed watching TV.  Instead make some exercise and have fun at the same time.  How we do this? Well, by playing table tennis.

    Thanks to all who collaborate one more time umpiring the matches to make this tournament one of the best in Newport Beach!
