Big Congrats to our Champions from LATTA Butterfly Open Dec. 4, 2021!

Hello Table Tennis Enthusiasts,
I wish you all good health, happiness, prosperity and lots of table tennis in 2022! 🙂 Thank you so much for the continued support. Many of you have displayed random acts of kindness towards me. I remember and truly appreciate it!


This tournament holds dear to me.  It is in memory of my Dad who passed away on Jan 23, 2015 to pneumonia at age 81.  Prior, he suffered from leukemia for a couple of years but it didn’t stop him from playing table tennis.  He was also avid pip player… runs in the Banh family!  I’ve been dedicating a tournament on his behalf every year with the exception of 2020 & 2021 due to pandemic.  Since this is a more meaningful tournament, I’m awarding prize $$ in all events with increased $$.  BIG SHOUTOUT TO SI & PATRICIA WASSERMAN FOR THEIR ENCOURAGEMENT, GENEROSITY AND SUPPORT!  THEY WILL ALSO DONATE A BRAND NEW BUTTERFLY OCTET TABLE AS SOON AS IT’S AVAILABLE IN STOCK AGAIN! SPEAKING OF BUTTERFLY TALBE, I’D LIKE TO RECOGNIZE EDDY LIN OF SCIENSCOPE FOR DONATING A NEW BUTTERFY OTCTET TABLE TO LATTA IN 2021!

Our trophies are the BEST and BIGGEST compared to all other Clubs!  2 feet tall, made of real marble!!!   As always, 2 players advance from preliminary round robin in all events!  Singles events include U1150RR, U1275RR, U1550RR, U185RR, U11950RR, U2050RR, U2150RR & U2300RR!

Butterfly white R40+ 3 star balls will be used.  Sponsored by Butterfly (Bowmar Sports!  Register at now or call or text me at 626-927-8670!


Our RR’s have been a major hit!  Plan on participating every Saturday except on a tournament day.  Very fun and friendly!  There are many players on different levels with different styles to play against!  See how you stack up against some of the best players in the area!  I usually split into 2 groups of at least 8 players per group.  If you would like to play in a RR, please call or text me at (626) 927 – 8670, or email me at  Advance notice appreciated, but not required.  Just show up!  Only $6 for club members; $12 for non-members.  The next round robin will be on Jan 30.
