Congratulations to Alanis Hamilton, gold medalist at 2019 Little Rock Hopes table tennis tournament!
Arkansas resident and competitive table tennis player Alanis Hamilton, age 12, from Bentonville, Arkansas recently won one of the regional Hopes Girls tournaments at the 2019 USA Hopes Qualifying Tournament held at the Little Rock Table Tennis Club on February 24, 2019.
The Arkansas Table Tennis Academy congratulates Alanis on this amazing and well-deserved accomplishment and is proud to announce that we are sponsoring her participation at the 2019 USA Hopes Week and Challenge.
Because of current renovations ongoing at the Dailey Fitness Center where Little Rock Table Tennis Club is located, the Arkansas Table Tennis Academy hosted the LRTTC Monthly Tournament for April 13, 2019.
This is the 60th monthly tournament of the Little Rock Table Tennis Club!
Thanks to those players who were able to make it to the Academy for LRTTC April 13th monthly tournament: Jason, Carlo, Vasu, Charlie, David, Olaf, and Mark.
$45 donations were collected for the fundraiser for Alanis Hamilton's Hopes Week participation.
Despite the heavy rain outside, inside atmosphere was bright and friendly. I enjoyed being able to watch the matches today, and happy to see everyone having fun.
Interesting stats: no 5-set matches, only 5 games going to deuce, and 13 out of 21 matches were 3-0. Jason and Carlo's match recorded the highest scoring game at 17-15.
And we had 3-way tie first place! Congrats to the top 3:
- Carlo claims Gold
- Jason wins Silver
- Vasu earns Bronze
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.
