Sacramento Table Tennis Club

Sac Spring Open Table Tennis Tournament – Held at Inderkum High in Sacramento on May 10, 2014.

This turned out to be quite the tournament, as 156 players turned out and very much enjoyed the morning Giant Round Robin singles format for most all events! This allowed all players from the initial round robin to advance to either Class "A" "B" or "C" in each Event! Adrian Lungu had a nice run in winning both the U-1900 "C", and U-1550 "B"! Masoud Dehdashti also brought home double hardware from the U-2250 "C", and the 1900 "B", as did Sudhanva Bharadwaj from getting 2nd in U-1550 "C" and 1st in U-1200 "A", as did Ethan Liu in 850 "A" and 500 "A", as did Aziz Zarehbin in 500 "B", and 150 "A"! Cong Xiao cashed in by taking 1st the 1900 "A" over Sanjay Bharadwaj in a tough 5 gamer, as did Trieu Nguyen in the 2250 "A" in straight games, with 2nd going to Keiran Mark Pinili. Open Singles featured several impressive 2300-2600 level players and was won by Zihong Huang over Weijan Zhang. The Semi's featured a couple youngsters putting up a tremendous fight, as Krish Avvari stretched Zhang to 5 games, and Victor Liu took a game from Champion Huang as well! And then, in the afternoon we held 3 player team events for all levels, providing a fun change of pace along with some terrific comaraderie! The top Division, U-6900 saw 3 teenagers, namely Shivi Kumar, Victor Liu, and Jordan Wong join forces to capture the top honors! Drama unfolded in the U-6000 semi's as Renata Sipos up from Arizona with her husband and fellow teammate Stelian made quite the comeback in her match against Tarun Tandon, which propelled her team, which included local George Seicean into the Finals, where they fell to Trieu Nguyen, Tra Tran, and Khan Le. The U-5100 Final was a dogfight right to the last match. An exhausted but determined Wendy Chen pulled out a 5 game win for her team to force the final match to be played, where Andy Lin finally ended it all in victory for his team! The main mission though of lots of fun and play for everyone was accomplished with all the close matches! Check out the scores/results for 1st and 2nd place winners for each division below.
