The Saddlebrooke Table Tennis club recently hosted Sun Lakes in our annual Friendly tournament. Over the years the tournament winner and traveling trophy has passed back and forth between the clubs. The tournament consisted of 18 singles and 5 doubles matches for a total of 23 scoring events. This year the score remained tied until the very end of the tournament with Sun Lakes winning the trophy with a final score of 12 to 11. The Saddlebrooke club has linked up with numerous other local clubs in the area to conduct additional friendly tournaments. These friendly matches provide the opportunity for all skill levels to meet and compete with other players in the Tucson area.
The club also annually competes in several large tournaments in Tucson, Green Valley, and Sierra Vista; in addition, a few of our members compete in USA Table Tennis sanctioned tournaments in Phoenix. All these tournament events, along with the addition of new members, enhances and improves the clubs ability to be more competitive. The club is always looking for new members, and provides the play-time and training opportunities to accommodate all skill levels of play.
