All Good Things Come to an End

After pondering for a long time and consulting with quite a few people, it seems that it makes sense that we will not return to the Milpitas Sports Center after the renovation. Here are the main reasons:

  • Milpitas has two full-time table tennis clubs already. There is also Top Spin not to far away in Santa Clara.
  • The growth potential in MSC is very limited due to the storage space and lack of time slots.
  • The cost. If you go to MSC twice a week, the drop-in fee is likely more expensive then the membership fees in most clubs.
Anyway, I think MSCTT has served its purpose. We can proudly brag that Milpitas has become the table tennis hot spot in the US. Altogether we made it happen.
  • 412 MSCTT group subscribers
  • 372 players participated in the largest USATT Singles League
  • Everything was run by volunteers. No funding whatsoever but players' contribution.
  • Great results locally and nationally
Although we will not have a physical location from now on, we will keep the mailing list for information dissemination purpose. Also, we will keep promoting the sport using the remaining fund. I promise that the money will be used wisely. A Board of Advisers will be formed to monitor the progress. Let me know if you are interested or have any question about it.

Hi I’ve been looking through your blog and found the information interesting. I was wondering if you could please add a link to my website. It is called Table Tennis Table Shop.

Link: Table Tennis Table Shop

The sites content is table tennis related and I’m sure your readers will find it interesting.

Much Appreciated, Simon.
