Firecracker Summer League! 2014

firecracker leagueWhat: Pure Pong is starting another Table Tennis league for novice through advanced level players (up to 1900 USATT rating).  Players will be placed on a table each league night that is appropriate to their skill level; generally, beginners play beginners, intermediates play intermediates, advanced play advanced. Each player plays three to five singles matches per night in a round robin format. If you are The Firecracker of the Table for the night (player with the best results), you advance up to the next table the following week. If you finish at the bottom of the table, you go down a table level the next week.  Players will play a lot of matches with many different players in this format. Wild Cards or Walk-ins (players not officially signed up in the league) may also play in the league on any given night. They will pay an additional fee that registered players don’t pay. These Wild Cards or walk-ins add some spark to the mix to the Firecracker league format. This is an opportunity to play a lot of different players, many different styles, and a good range of ratings!

Who:  Open to all novice-intermediate level players (under 1900 USATT level)

When:  Every Tuesday night 7:00-8:30 p.m. starting June 10, continuing on June 17, June 24 , July 1, July 8, and July 15.  Wild Cards or Walk-ins need to show up by 6:45 p.m. to be placed in the round robin that night. We will be accepting sign-ups starting Tuesday, June 3.
