January 17, 2020

Hello Table Tennis Enthusiasts,

What an amazing start for LATTA & I in 2020!  Increased in various activities: memberships, private lesson students, Saturday 10am round robins, & 1 day visitor passes.  I have already placed an order to purchase 2 brand new Butterfly Europa tables.  Butterfly will ship as soon as they have the tables in stock.  We are continuing the BEAST MODE energy & effect at LATTA!  I’ve been in table tennis for 32 yrs and will continue to serve the table tennis community.  Again, thank you so much for all your support!
