2017 MAY UPSIDE DOWN OPEN RECAP - Butterfly Table Tennis
Site Products


(By Triangle Table Tennis)

Our annual Upside Down tournament is a great opportunity for lower rated players to have a shot at the big money usually reserved for the top events.  This year, we had $650 in cash and prizes for the U900 event!  We had players from Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia, and plenty of locals.  The biggest upset in the tournament was Chris Xiao going undefeated and winning the U2150 as the 5th seed.  Congratulations to all that came out and played.  See you again soon!
