2009 Vancouver Island Closed Tournament

"Thank you so much for the prompt results, to a great tournament, which I think everyone enjoyed. It was good to meet other players from the island, as we get a bit stale playing the same people at our respective clubs. Thanks for a job well done". Ken Osborne

"Thank you for having such a wonderful idea and starting the V.I. Table Tennis web site - I really enjoyed watching all the great table tennis in Nanaimo on Sunday". Brenda Kinder

Just a couple of comments we received about the 2009 Vancouver Island Closed Tournament held in Nanaimo on Sunday October 18th. Images from the tournament are now available - click here. (When the link opens just click on "Slideshow").
We wish to thank Claudia McLean and Paul Paquette for providing these pictures. Paul, who supplied the majority of the images, deserves special thanks. He turned up on Sunday to watch some table tennis and ended up getting roped in to becoming the official photographer. He then quickly processed and dispatched the images to us so we could get them posted for all to see. Thanks Paul.

Table Tennis: Good for Body and Brain

“Table tennis is the world’s best brain sport.” — Daniel G. Amen, M.D., in Making a Good Brain Great.

As with many other sports, table tennis started as a pastime. Table tennis was first played in the 1880's by Victorian Englishmen who tried to mimic the game of lawn tennis on a table in an indoor environment. They may not have known it was good for the brain, as Amen mentions, but they reaped the benefits anyway........ To read the rest of the article from the "Well Being Journal" click here.
