SVTTC Hosts First Family League Night

SVTTC Hosts First Family League Night
By Angela Guan

For most children playing table tennis, their parents are the ones who drive them to their practice sessions, pick up balls for them, watch them, and bring them home. Rarely do their parents find the time to play some table tennis on their own, but believe it or not, many parents are great players themselves. To honor this fact and encourage more parents and adults to practice table tennis, on Friday, February 17th, 2017, the SVTTC Friday League hosted the first Family League.http://www.teamusa.org/USA-Table-Tennis/Features/2017/February/27/SVTTC-Hosts-First-Family-League-Night

Children teamed up with their parents, uncles, or even grandparents, in my case, before the group was divided into two major teams, consisting of six pairs of adult/child each, before the league began. Every pair of adult/child competed against two other pairs in two single matches and one doubles match. At first, boys and girls were coached and cheered on by their parents or relatives as normal, but when the adults’ turn came to compete, their roles were reversed. Not every match was child versus child or adult versus adult. Participants of the two singles matches were mixed for each set of pairs, which were then followed by the deciding doubles match in which the adult/child pairs had to work together. Looking down at the row of family league tables, people at the SVTTC smiled and watched the joy, laughter, and friendly family league atmosphere.
