Effective immediately the DROP IN SESSIONS at AT & T Sports Pavilion have been suspended. As the ATTSP is under new management and undergoing a policy change.  This alteration will effect future availability for our table tennis club to meet at this facility.  

All sport drop-in sessions have been dropped at the ATTSP.   Now our club is awaiting what the new policy will be for the AKTTC to utilize the gym courts and storage of the club table tennis tables.  

So all current and future DROP-IN SESSIONS have been cut from ATTSP schedule. We HOPE to start soon, hopefully as early as Thursday July 9, 2015.  Please check back or call Karl Augestad at (907)360-4276 for more information.

Anchorage Park Foundation 1st Annual Ping Pong Tournament 

Thanks to the Anchorage Park Foundation for hosting the first annual Minnesota Park Outdoor Ping Pong Rain or Shine the event went on. Splashy play back and forth with plenty of close matchups. Tournament on Monday August 19, 2013.  Held to celebrate the new concrete ping pong table at (you guessed it) Minnesota Park on (you guessed it) Minnesota Drive.  In a "Final Four" type bracket 32 players braved the elements to play not only against their opponent, but also against Mother Nature.  RAIN!  Yes it was wet but fun.

Several subsitutes filled for no-show players.  Plenty of players showed up to fill the wet shoes.  Including Paul Elliott from the AKTTC.  The first round of matches took just over an hour with a single game to 11 point, serving rotation every 2 points and swapping sides at the first to 5 points.  See the PHOTOS and FINAL RESULTS HERE
