Congratulations to Charlie Brooks of Sheridan, Arkansas! Charlie submitted the winning bid of $150 to claim the limited edition 2019 Little Rock Hopes swag bag filled with all the goodies from the 2019 Little Rock Hopes camp and stuffed with many extras, including 5 hours of individual lessons at the Arkansas Table Tennis Academy.
The proceeds from this auction benefit Alanis Hamilton and her attendance at the 2019 USATT Hopes Week and Challenge on April 15-21, 2019 in Sacramento, California.
On Sunday, March 31, 2019 the Arkansas Table Tennis Academy hosted a pilot program for a team league that we are hoping will develop into a long term team league. This was a good opportunity to provide a different playing format and to raise funds for Alanis Hamilton and her attendance at the 2019 USATT Hopes Week and Challenge on April 15-21, 2019 in Sacramento, California.
A very big thank you to those who were able to play in the team league pilot program, and for all the donations...together we raised $140 for Alanis Hamilton Hopes Week fundraiser, with over $500 so far.
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.
