Triangle Table Tennis – May 2017 News and Happenings

The 2017 April Open Tournament was a
Full Day of Competition and Fun
Following the intensity of the National Team Trials and Butterfly Cary Cup we hosted in March, we lightened up a bit with a 1-day USATT 2-star sanctioned tournament in April. Players enjoyed 4 rating level singles events, as well as a 3-Person Brazilian Teams event that was so popular with our players that we may add another one later in the year! You can check out some of the event photos in our Facebook Photo Album.
We Enjoyed Hosting a Corporate Outing with GSK
GlaxoSmithKline’s Insights & Analytics team joined us in May for a team outing, complete with on-site dinner, open play, and a private tournament. You can see some of the photos from this event in our Facebook Photo Album. We had a great time hosting them, and we’d love to host YOUR company or community group for a fun team-building event, as well!
