Nice shots, Tom. I think you've got the "hang" of that new lens!

Thanks Robert,

I really enjoyed shooting the tournament. Everyone was very friendly and appreciated the photos I shared with them.

I played in leagues for 21 years, thanks for sharing.

Looks like a serious tournament and good quality players using good quality equipment. Most use 'shake hands' grip but still some 'penholders' in your pics.

The 1/10th of one ounce ball can travel over 100mph across the net.

I still don't like it they changed scoring from 21 pts. to 11 for each game, but that's another story . . .

Some of the more 'serious' players may prefer to call it 'table tennis.'

Looks like some good stuff. I also played a bit when at school age qualifying for a couple of national events then promptly going out in the 1st or 2nd round.

I've moved this to the sports section for you too
