Photos, Videos and Report of 2019 USATT Hopes Camp and Tournament, February 22-24 in Little Rock, Arkansas
The 2019 Hopes camp and tournament at the Little Rock Table Tennis Club was an amazing experience! From writing the proposal requesting that USATT hold a camp here, through several months of planning, to meeting the parents and working with the young athletes in the camp, the entire adventure was educational, inspiring, and rewarding.
Read about the weekend, enjoy the photos, and watch the video conveniently organized in my camp and tournament report published on the USATT website: 2019 Little Rock Hopes. Thanks to Sean O'Neill at Paddle Palace and Matt Heatherington at USATT for helping to format and publish this report with photos and videos.
