LATTA OPEN SAT, MARCH 21, 2020

Hello Table Tennis Enthusiasts,I’m very happy to announce that I bought 3 new Butterfly tables from the US Olympic Trials at Santa Monica College last week!  LATTA Members have enjoyed playing on the new tables since March 2nd!  Great look with a crispy bounce!  Big shout out to Butterfly for giving me a club discount and delivering all tables to LATTA!  Butterfly really has the best tables and equipment & supplies!

One act of kindness that I think worth mentioning is that last Sunday evening, March 1st, Brendan Ross (rated 1531) dropped by LATTA, with a very cool barrier that says “US Olympic Trials!”  He watched the Olympic Trials at Santa Monica and then drove all the way to LATTA to present the barrier to me as a gift!  Such a thoughtful and sweet gesture.  Many times, I find these small acts of kindness are very fulfilling & memorable!  Again, thank you, Brendan Ross!
