Dominant Champions Take Top Spot at Triangle Winter Teams

By Triangle Table Tennis | Feb. 01, 2018, 3:27 p.m. (ET)

Over the weekend, we hosted our 4th annual Winter Two-Person Teams Tournament.  The two-person teams format lends itself to compelling competition, as match-ups change several times within a single team match. With over 100 players representing 7 states, we had a great mix of local players and out-of-towners competing in the U2500, U3000, U3500, U4000, and Open Division.

Yu Di and Rachid El-Boubou were the undisputed champions at the 2018 Triangle Winter Teams tournament, comfortably overcoming the reunited old-timers Brian Pace and Derek May. The gold medal pair only dropped one game in the final on their way to winning the event.
