  • Congratulations to Ming Zhang, Nelson Yu and Dan Lin who won weekly round robin for table 1, 2, and 3, respectively. Click here for full results. 1910 matches have been played since the League started. (James Nguyen's result was not entered into USATT website due to the expiration of his membership.)
  • I offered several times to waive coach Chai's RR fee and was repeatedly declined by him. Coach Chai has contributed to the general fund greatly by donating all the incomes from the clinics. I believe there are several thousands dollars already. Therefore, I've made an executive decision to make the RR free for coach Chai permanently just to show a small token of appreciation. Jim, your objection is noted!
  • We will have 3 tables for round robin next week. Please send me an email to reserve yours spots. To encourage more participants and higher level of play, we will "waive" the $4 contribution for first-time round robin players and for players whose USATT rating is over 2100. This is a trial and we could cancel or change at any time.
  • The clinics on 11/29 is full. You are welcome to reserve for future dates. The 6:10 and 8:10 sessions are still available on 12/6. $10 recommended per 30-minute session. Thanks to USATT regional coach Jim Chai who donates all proceeds to the club.
