Fun, Exciting Matches, Good Cause Hurricane Harvey
Nearly three months after Hurricane Harvey slammed into Houston with flooding rains and destructive winds causing an estimated $200 billion in damages, the area’s table tennis community came together for Pong for Harvey on November 18-19th at the Houston International Table Tennis Academy (HITTA).
More than 80 players on 12 tables in all levels of competition participated in a fun filled weekend of spirited play and civic pride and rebuilding according to Manny Velazquez, the Director of Competition and Tournament Committee at HITTA.
“What can you say?” wrote Velazquez in a recent email to USATT officials. “All events had great play, great fun and everyone enjoyed their participation.”
