Table Tennis Club Stuns in Annual Shoot Out

David Zapatka

Sun Lakes fielded 10 table tennis players for the annual Ahwatukee-Sun Lakes Shoot-out. Two hours of exciting play from both clubs at all levels resulted in a Sun Lakes victory. Format for this year’s event was 26 doubles matches, best two games out of three to 11. The final result was Sun Lakes 22 – Ahwatukee 4. This win allowed SLTTC to keep the traveling trophy in Sun Lakes where it belongs. Congratulations, men and women!

Many thanks go to Ahwatukee Table Tennis Club President Scrappy for his wonderful hospitality and organizing the event and to Sun Lakes Table Tennis Club President Richard Nadler for the grueling hours of practice he put us through over the past several months in preparation for this event. Special thanks also go to June Wagner, who organized our pom-pom squad, for her leadership and many hours of squad practice. We couldn’t have done it without you, June!

Following the full morning of play, Ahwatukee provided an outstanding lunch for all the players.

The growth in our club this season has been fabulous. We welcome all Sun Lakes residents and urge you to join our group if you love to play table tennis. For more information regarding SLTTC, contact Club President Richard Nadler at 480-782-9020 or [email protected] or go to our website at
