Our 10th FIT Tournament at this fantastic location was a huge success.
We always appreciate and thank our wonderful sponsors of this event, held here in the
heart of New York City, the greatest city in the World! Our major
sponsors for this event were Metro Funding Corp represented by
Mr. David Hecht, President, Fashion Institute of Technology represented by Ms. Kerri
McTeirnan and Mr. Wayne Chin.
The Open Event was won by
Gao Yun Jun over Ernesto Ebuen in a very exciting final. These two have met a
couple of times in previous events with this time, Gao overpowering Ernesto's consistency.
Again I wish to give a big thank you to the table tennis community and
especially to all of those players that participated. I hope to see
you all again.
