Holiday Ping Pong Tournament

Posted on January 7, 2018 by under Events.    


I played in Uncle Roy’s first Holiday Ping Pong Tournament last month and didn’t do too bad. I’m still learning how to play so I didn’t really expect to get very far in the field. I think in the very first ping pong tournament I played, I was eliminated in the first round.

I was a little bit worried because my first match was with Vic. It was a close one but I came from behind to win it. My next match after that was with Roy and I knew I wouldn’t be advancing.

I lost my match in the losers bracket also. However, the guy who ultimately won the tournament came from the losers bracket to win it. He was new to Uncle Roy’s ping pong events as well. He was a friend of a friend and, much to everyone’s surprise, he walked away with the trophy — the trophy that we all thought Uncle Roy would win because he ALWAYS wins. Not this time, apparently.


Here’s a picture of the champ, Robbie. He actually had to beat Roy twice to win since Roy was undefeated going into the championship round.


Check out this beautiful trophy. It’s heavy too.


Brian got a few photos of me playing.


I think Vic was completely shocked that I won against him and he challenged me to another game after the tournament. As luck would have it, I won again!


Here’s a picture of me and Jen, Vic’s better half.


It was super fun. I hope I get invited to one of these events again.
