Hello Table Tennis Enthusiasts,
First, I’d like to give a HUGE SHOUT OUT TO CHRIS L'HEUREUX (Age 39, rated 1379), for participating in ALL my monthly sanctioned tournaments: consecutively from March 2018 to May 2019! As a result, during my last LATTA Open Tournament, I surprised & gifted Chris with 2 Yasaka rubbers that he is currently using! His wife comes and cheers him on every time, from beginning to end! Thank you Chris and your Wife for your LATTA loyalty and support!
2nd ANNUAL LATTA LEE RITTENBURG MEMORIAL OPEN: SATURDAY, JUNE 29, 2019 (USATT SANCTIONED TOURNAMENT!!!
Join our June 29 Tournament! This tournament holds dear to my heart, in memory of our beloved Mr. Lee Rittenburg! He was not only my LATTA student and member, but was an Ambassador to our sport! Mr. Lee was gracious to always offer people grapes to eat. He almost had a perfect record of attending LATTA monthly Tournaments & weekly Saturday Round Robins. After, he would infamously blog about results on his Attorney website. Such a wonderful man, gone too soon, but forever in my heart.

PRIZE $$$ in events U1800 to U2225! In honor of Mr. Lee, trophies will be awarded to 1st, 2nd and both Semifinalists in U1050 to U1800!
