TT NORTH No Comments

Deh Gah School in Fort Providence hosted the 2017 Territorial Table Tennis Championships. A two day event featuring different age groups, singles and double events from January 27th to 28th.

“This was an amazing event, a huge success! We are a very young Territorial Sports Organization still and competing with sports like Hockey, Volleyball, Soccer and Basketball in the Northwest Territories. BUT, we are getting out there, one day at a time and one kid at a time. Really, this was amazing!!!” says Executive Director Thor Gohl. He continous with a smile on his face “Even when there was no matches to be played or umpired, the kids found a free table to play. That says it all!!”

The tournament is definitely growing. From three Regions and four communities, to four regions and seven communities. Participants came from Yellowknife, N’Dilo, Fort Resolution, Hay River, Fort Providence, Fort Simpson and Tulita. We also split the School Championships from the Open Championships, so we have two tournaments a year in two different communities.  

A huge thank you to all our sponsors and partners, without you, this would not be possible. Therefore, a big MAHSI CHO to the Mackenzie Recreation Association, Aerobic Table Tennis, Rowe’s Group of Companies, Butterfly North America and Deh Gah School. 

All awards received a Mackenzie Recreation Association package with  backpack, hat, and t-shirt. They also received t-shirts from Olympic Team Canada and professional Table Tennis rackets from Steve Rowe’s Aerobic Table Tennis.

A great weekend of play and competitions!!

Here are the results:

Men’s Open: 1. Jeremy Kielstra (N’Dilo) 2. Mike Mathison (Yellowknife) 3. Robert Heath (Fort Resolution)

Zack Horton (Hay River) received the Fair Play award for his amazing attitude. Winning or not winning he was always cheerful. When someone else made an amazing point, he would cheer for them and tell others about it. When there was a free table he would want to play with all different players. Very great to have that kind of energy around.

David Sangris (N’Dilo) received the Most Improved Player award with winning a Silver Medal in the Cadet Boys category and a Gold Medal in the Open Doubles. We have seen much improvement, just during the tournament. He is a dedicated player, coming with the school to Table Tennis clinics and tournaments.

Starr MacLean (Fort Resolution) received the Most Improved Player award and bronze in Cadet Girls category. We were in Fort Resolution recently and we can see fast improvement. When she was not playing in the competition, she was looking for others to play with.

Undefeated, in not just their own grade, but the entire tournament, were Cole Clinton (6, 7) and Brian Liang (8-12) The youngest athlete, Zakary Mathieson (Grade 2) was undefeated, even among the Grade 6 players. That made him the gold medalist!

Thank you to Thor for organizing and executing the events over the past weeks in Yellowknife. Thanks also to Ulli Nolting for helping out wherever needed.”

“It has been an amazing event, everything worked out perfectly” says Executive Director, Thor about the workshops and tournament this past weekend.

2016 Territorial School Championships

TT NORTH No Comments

Weledeh School and Table Tennis North are excited to host the 2016 Territorial Table Tennis School Championships from November 25-27th 2016. It will be a combination of clinic and tournament so the students can see how a Table Tennis tournament is run and experience it. This will be our second Territorial School Championships in just one year of being a Territorial Sports Organization.

Early in Spring this year, all physical education teachers in Yellowknife came together to plan Table Tennis clinics in their schools. To finish those clinics they wanted to host a tournament and that is how it all came together.

“We are looking forward to this event. There is quite a few kids interested in Table Tennis, so I am sure that we will have a good turn out for this event.” says Ulli Nolting, Phys. Ed. Teacher at Weledeh School.

Also very excited about this is Marny Twigge, new elected Vice-President of Table Tennis North “We see that the schools are definitely loving the sport of Table Tennis and I am sure that this will be a great event with many participants.”

You can find more information right here on our website: http://www.tabletennisnorth.ca/2016-territorial-school-championships/

We are looking forward to seeing you all at Weledeh School on November 25th 2016!
