Table Tennis Media Tournament




In case you didn't know, Cary, NC is kind of a big deal in the competitive table tennis world. In fact, Cary will host the 2012 U.S. Olympic Trials for table tennis from February 8-12 at Bond Park Community Center. These trials will feature the top 40 players in the US vying for a spot on the 2012 US Olympic Team.

That is pretty cool, but what does that have to do with Tobacco Road Sports Cafe, you might ask. Well, in anticipation for the event, 11 members of the local media (radio, tv, web and print) will be playing in their own table tennis tournament on January 13th. This media tournament will take place at our Raleigh location on Glenwood Ave. It begins at 7 pm and the public is invited to come out as spectators to this unique event.

Here's the list of the fierce competitors:
  • Mark Armstrong, WTVD TV 11
  • J. Mike Blake, Cary News
  • Page Crawford, WNCN NBC 17
  • Luke DeCock, News & Observer
  • Penn Holderness, WNCN NBC 17
  • Chuck Kaiton, Carolina Hurricanes
  • Mike Maniscalco, 99.9 The Fan
  • Derek Medlin, WRAL.com
  • Joe Ovies, 99.9 The Fan
  • Tisha Powell, WTVD TV 11
  • Mark Thomas, 99.9 The Fan
Don't miss out on what is sure to be a competitive and certainly comical affair!
