This weekend, December 2-3, Westchester Table Tennis Center will host the Over 40 Tour Final Championship. Dozens of Over 40 events have been held throughout the year, all culminating to this grand final event with more than $12,000 in total prize money up for grabs. The tournament will be hosted over two days with the Giant Snake Ladder Event on Saturday 2nd and the Over 40 Tour Final events on Sunday which feature age group and rating events. 

Players have qualified for the Over 40 Tour Final by competing in a minimum of 2 Over 40 events throughout the playing season, though players who are not eligible may still enter under certain conditions, you can read more information about those conditions and more in this document (click here).

Entries are accepted up to the start time of each event so players may register to compete on the day and with over 200 players eligible to compete in the event from all age categories and abilities it promises to be a great event. 

The competition will be hot with players like US Olympian Jimmy Butler and top Over 40 contenders from the New York area - Gao Yanjun, Shao Yu and De Tran, all on the list of eligible contenders for the top spot. 

The big event draws to a close a 2 year competition across the USA of Over 40 championship events, the perfect buildup for the upcoming 2018 World Veteran Championships in Las Vegas, Nevada, which has already seen over 3500 contestants registered and is the biggest veteran sporting event in the world.
