1st Polytechnic Open Table Tennis Championships

by Lily Yip

This was our first event held in Polytechnic Institute of NYU.  All the players were very pleased with the excellent conditions and convenient location of this event.  We had over 70 players in the 8 events that were held on Labor Day, September 1, 2008.  All the events ran quite smoothly on our brand new Double Fish Tables.  This table was the same model that was used in the 2008 World Championships in Guangzhou. (My hometown!).

We would like to thank Professor Haldun Hadimioglu, Professor Ming Leung, Polytechnic student Felix Filizov and former Polytechnic student Sevron Ghee for their invaluable help in making this tournament a reality.

The winner of the Open Event was Ernesto Ebuen over Li Yuxiang.  The most exciting match was the semi-final match between Li Yuxiang over Atanda Musa going the full distance, three games to two.

I hope we may see you again at any of our future tournaments which will be listed on my websites at: www.lilyyip.com and www.doublefish-us.com.

Again, thank you to all of the players and spectators that make our events a success.
