SVTTC Reunion League
Both seasoned players as well as youngsters look forward every Friday to play the Butterfly SVTTC Friday league. It is a league that was started by San Francisco Bay Area Table Tennis aficionados 13 years back. Since the early days, the league has had active participation from cadets and juniors who later went on to shine at the national and international level. One cannot undermine the seasoned adult players and occasional high level players/coaches who actively participate in the league to test the patience and skills of the upcoming young stars, as well other adults.
The league is held using the team format, where 2 teams each consisting of 6 to 7 players compete against one another. Each player challenges the player on the other teams, testing each other’s skills and endurance till the doors close down at night at the SVTTC club, located in Milpitas, California. One could witness and enjoy all the styles of table tennis showcased in one place. The styles include Choppers [Short Pips, Long Pips, Inverted + Modern, Classical], Loopers [Soft, Hard], Smashers, Fishers, Lobbers, and Blockers. The styles are embraced by players with either Shakehand or Penhold grips. It is very rare (across the leagues in the country) to find such experienced players with all these styles assembled to fight out the battle with skilled youngsters trained by the coaches in the Bay Area.
