2nd Polytechnic Open Table Tennis Championships

Our 2nd Polytechnic Open was again a huge success. This event was originally supposed to be held last March, but a problem with one of the lighting fixtures closed the gym and required us to reschedule the tournament for September. We had a great response from the players for our first tournament of the new season.  The Open event had eighteen players with six over 2500 in rating. It was won by Gao Yan Jun over Shao Yu.  The Womenís event had 6 players with the top three over 2250 and was won by Taylor Wang, one of our new Professional Players from China now living and teaching in Wang Chenís Club in New York City. 

The tournament ran very well. All the events were started on time and we finished each day at about 5:00pm.  As in most of our tournaments the higher rated events were held on Saturday. From the comments we received, it seemed that the players and the spectators really enjoyed the tournament. 

We like to again express our thanks to Polytechnic Institute of Technology which is now part of NYU and especially thank Professor Haldun Hadimioglu, Professor Ming Leung, Polytechnic Alum Felix Filizov for their invaluable help in making this tournament a success.
