LA Mayor's Inauguration Table Tennis

The team at California Table Tennis were involved with another great event in cooperation with LA2024 this month. After a successful Olympic Day celebration, the team were back with 4 national team members - Grace and Rachel Yang, Klaus Wood and Nick Tio - along with US National Coach Gao Jun. The event was organized to celebrate the inauguration of Eric Garcetti into his second term as the 42nd Mayor of Los Angeles.

Along with demonstrations from Fencing, there was also a great show from Table Tennis - all with the purpose of highlighting LA's Olympic Dream. 

With an audience of over 3000 attending the event it was certainly one to be remembered. 

A special thank you to California Table Tennis, Coach Gao Jun and her staff, players and support, for bringing us some coverage from the event and for promoting table tennis at these amazing events!
