The Gauntlet Has Been Thrown And The Table Tennis Challenge Is On!

The 2012 USA Table Tennis U.S. Open is coming to Grand Rapids the end of June through July 4th.

 

It should be great fun, because it will be all over DeVos Place with players from around the world competing.

But, the West Michigan Sports Commission want to create a little excitement beforehand, so they have decided to host a Table Tennis Charity Challenge at Celebration! Cinema North.

The Challenge will pit local celebrities and sports figures against each other in bracketed table tennis matches.  The ultimate winner of these matches will take on Connie Sweeris, 1987 U.S. Table Tennis Hall of Famer, in a final table tennis showdown.

Good luck with that.  Connie hits the ball so well, and so hard that, if I were to play her, my main approach tactic would be “duck!”

$700 will be donated in the name of the winner of this match to a local charity and $300 will be donated in the runner-up’s name.  Donations are courtesy of Celebration! Cinema.
