Registration for Saturday

For those of you who are attending, Stanford changed their certification policy this year so it's a little more annoying :(. Between now and Saturday, please drop by the Student Affairs Center at Tressidor (right next to the LAIR) and ask for a red Certification letter. I was in and out in 5 minutes so it shouldn't take very long at all.

Thanks again,

Next week we will be resuming our normal schedule with open play / drills on Monday and a round robin league on Wednesday.

Also, if you intend to come on Mondays and Wednesdays, please join the Stanford Table Tennis group on Athleague. I was told that our practices may be canceled if we do not get signups for those who play.

The following is a step by step on how to sign up:
1) Go to and create an account.

3) Choose the "Search team by league" option and click the red link for "Club Sports" at the top

It's really important to do this to keep having practice and should take less than 5 minutes.

Have a good weekend,
