2010 Chesapeake Open on the JOOLA North American Tour

March 13-14, 2010 | Baltimore, MD

The debut of a new event, the Chesapeake Open on the JOOLA North American Tour!  We bring our traveling road show to a fine facility, the Ralph S. O’Connor Recreation Center at Johns Hopkins University in historic Baltimore.

Easily accessed by the I-95 corridor and a great airport, the Chesapeake Open figures to be a Mid-Atlantic must, convenient for USATT members from Rhode Island to North Carolina.  Three full basketball courts will be covered with JOOLA tables for play, and the clean, modern hall is a pleasure.  Baltimore has plenty for your family to do as well: quality restaurants, Fort McHenry, National Aquarium, Babe Ruth Museum.  Dozens of great attractions ensure they can enjoy the weekend, too.

Johns Hopkins Table Tennis Club is our host, and play here benefits that organization.  Those young people will also be manning a concession stand and providing food for sale, also to benefit their activities in our great sport!

Smooth sailing ahead!  The Chesapeake Open is a great place to launch your game and satisfy your competitive instincts.
