LATTA Thanh Banh Memorial Open

NEW trophy style. LATTA Thanh Banh Memorial Open Jan 25th!

Hello Table Tennis Enthusiasts,

What an amazing start for LATTA & I in 2020!  Increased in various activities: memberships, private lesson students, Saturday 10am round robins, & 1 day visitor passes.  I have already placed an order to purchase 2 brand new Butterfly Europa tables.  Butterfly will ship as soon as they have the tables in stock.  We are continuing the BEAST MODE energy & effect at LATTA!  I’ve been in table tennis for 32 yrs and will continue to serve the table tennis community.  Again, thank you so much for all your support!

OMG 🙂 2) Dylan Ley–Dec. 2018 to Dec. 2019, total of 10 tournaments! I awarded Dylan too because he’s a super nice guy.  Didn’t want him to go Tenergy-less 🙂


This tournament holds dear to me.  It is my Dad’s 6th year memorial so as always, I will dedicate a tournament on his behalf every year.  Since this is a more meaningful tournament, I decided to change the trophy to a new style!  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 U975RR, U1200RR, U1350RR, U1475RR, U1675RR, U1800RR, U1950RR, U2100RR, U2200RR & U2300RR!  PRIZE $$$ in events U1800 to U2225!

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!  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; $10 for non-members.
