Blob Trophy 2023 - Our Blobfest inspired hardbat tournament saw 13 players compete. Tim H. was our winner beating Jimmy S. in the final!
Battle of the Counties has come to a close. Our two month long event saw the Montgomery County Monarchs pulling ahead of the Chester County Cheetahs in the last two weeks and they never looked back. The Berks Bears took third over the Lehigh Lobsters. Both those teams could only compete sporadically but I appreciate them joining in the fun!
Watch out for slick floors! The DEW POINT is the bane of our club. When it gets hot and humid the AC cools down the floors and table tops to the point that a thin layer of water forms over them. Please be careful, and notify others if you notice it starting up.
We will hold a USA Table Tennis sanctioned tournament on Saturday August 19th.
If you have not already signed up please contact me to be placed on the waiting list. The events have been full for a while but people do drop out. There is no open play that day but you are welcome to spectate or volunteer! I could use some scorekeepers for the final matches.
Here is our local area guide for those coming from out of town.

Here is a google maps list I have created with all the places to play in our area.
Princeton Pong Tournament Winners
Jimmy and James took home some hardware in the monthly Princeton Pong tournament.
Tim W. has some items he would like to discuss. He is keeping a club ratings record, you will find it posted at the club. All you need to do to keep it up to date is send him your wins and losses.
Tim also would like to see about opening the club on Thursday nights. We wanted to see if a team can be put together to share the responsibilities of setting up, breaking down, turning the money in, etc. Nick cannot help because he works Thursday nights. Once we have a group of volunteers, then we will approach the Rec Center with the idea. Contact
