Why a Table Tennis tourney?

In 2016, DECA partnered with the Scadding Court Community Centre to award a $2,000 scholarship to a young person graduating from high school in our neighbourhood. Applicants had to demonstrate both community leadership experience and financial need.

In an effort to raise money for the scholarship, DECA launched the 1st Annual Table Tennis for Tuition tournament. We raised more than $2,000 and were able to award our first scholarship.

TT4T 2017 – Let’s Do It Again!

There will be 3 “regional” mini-tournaments held June 1, 8 and 15. Each mini-tournament starts at 6pm. You will be contacted in advance for information about your date and location.

The 3 mini-tournaments will be held using the outdoor ping pong tables at the following parks:

  • Stephenson
  • East Lynn
  • Monarch Park

The winners from the play-in tournaments will play in the finals to be held on June 22 at East Lynn Park.

Who can play?

Anyone over the age of 13 can put together a team of two players to face off in one of 2 leagues:

  • Recreational – I love playing ping pong for fun!
  • Competitive – I have some experience playing and have a spirit to win!

We can’t guarantee which night of play. Registrants need to be prepared to play any of the nights listed above and, should they win on their night, June 22 for the finals. There are no refunds.

What are the rules?

  • This is singles play; one member of your team of 2 will play against one of the opposing team of 2 for each game.
  • Each team consists of 2 players (can be 2 adults, 2 youth, or 1 adult + 1 youth).
  • Your team will face off against your opponents in a best out-of-3 match.
  • You and your partner MUST alternate EACH GAME until one of the teams has won the best of 3 match. For the 3rd game, if applicable, you can choose who plays.
  • Each game goes to 21 points
  • Players alternate serves every 5 points
  • Remember this is all for a good cause! Outdoor ping-pong can get windy. Some ref calls may be disputable. But at the end of the day this is for fun and for the support of our young leaders. So keep your spirits light!

How much does it cost?

We are asking that each player donate $20 ($10 for 13-19 years of age) to the scholarship program for each entry into the tournament by purhasing a ticket. 13 is our minimum age for players.

What can you win?

We will have trophies and prizes for three categories:

  • Recreational League Champion
  • Competitive League Champion
  • Spirit Award – We are encouraging costumes, wigs and general zany-ness

About

The Danforth East Community Association started in an unusual way. We didn’t gather together to fight against something — a development or city plan. We gathered to build something. We met around our dining room tables to share dreams of what our little pocket could be and plans to get us there. Our vision, from the start in 2007, was to make Danforth East a more vibrant, walkable, safe place. A few months in, we held our inaugural community association meeting, expecting a couple dozen people to show up. More than 130 arrived. Visit http://deca.to/aboutus/ to learn more about us.
