Greenlake Table Tennis Tournament

Just in case you didn’t get this email from GLTTC here you go…
A day after announcing our tournament for December, we discovered that WTTC in Bellevue had a tournament planned for the same weekend. Fortunately, the Green Lake Community Center is able to give us the weekend of October 29-30. Please mark your calendars.

What makes this tournament special?


Community involvement – The Seattle Table Tennis Championships are a joint effort by Seattle Parks & Recreation and local table tennis enthusiasts. Last year there were close to 20 volunteers.

Public focus – We aim to bring attention to our sport. Last year’s event was featured on the front page of the Seattle Times “Lifestyle” section. A KOMO TV news team came and there were more than 100 paid spectators at the 3 pm finals “show” on Sunday. (

New players – We want to bring new players into organized table tennis. Last year, we offered one event especially for new players, and Coach Judy Qi held a class with her coaches and students. This year, I would like to expand on this. What are YOUR ideas? Let me know.

I think it is fair to say that the 3rd Seattle City Championships exceeded expectations. The tournament drew 110 players from Canada and

the United States. We were featured on the front page of the Seattle Times “Lifestyle” section on Sunday, October 24, and we had over 100 paid spectators in addition to the players and family members for the 3 pm finals “show” on Sunday. There were about 20 volunteers and we received sponsorship from Seattle Parks and Recreation, the Green Lake Advisory Council, Killerspin, the Seattle Pacific Table Tennis Club, the Northwest Senior Games, Paddle Palace, Hyun Lee, and Phil & Karen Lam. Thank you to everyone who participated, watched and helped out.

The 3 pm finals events began with the Under 14 Singles. Michael Zhao took first over runner-up, Kevin Li. This was followed by a exhibition between 11 year old, Reda Ali, and 87 year old Gene Treneer. James Qiao defeated Jenny Zhao with a score of 4 to 1 to take the Seattle City Champion singles title.
