On two beautiful fall days in Highland Indiana 234 Table Tennis players traveled to the Lincoln Center Fieldhouse to participate in our 12th Annual South Shore Sports / Butterfly TT Championships. This was the largest turnout SBTTC had seen in a while but with a good time schedule and Coach Seemiller literally taking several events out on the floor to hand direct the players we managed to stay on schedule.
This tourney also encompasses the Nate Wasserman Junior Championships and 44 players nationwide came to compete for over $5000 in those 6 events. SBTTC thanks them for their sponsorship and we love hosting both these Juniors and all the other players who participate in our tourney. As always the revenue from this as well as the St. Joe Valley Open is used to fund our Junior Program.
Speaking of which several of you probably ran into Marty Stoner (winner of U1875 & U1750), Dominique Clark (winner of U1000 & U800), Ronnie Coleman (2nd in U800) and brothers Dion & Dionta Payne-Miller.
The current and future success of these and other of our Junior players rest on the proceeds from SBTTC's 2 major tournaments and the donations from our many individuals and sponsors!! And of course ... none of this happens without the loyal support of our volunteers ... there is no amount of thanks that can reward them for their efforts (so we do provide them with pizza throughout the weekend:).
