Berkeley CA
Berkeley, CA is famous for it’s diversity, tolerance, and creativity and thus is an ideal location for our second California tour stop of the season!
Three full basketball courts with bleachers in this venue, well-lit and air conditioned with wooden floors. Parking will be tight on the 4th, as Berkeley plays host to UC Davis in a varsity football game on this Labor Day weekend. Public transportation is outstanding here, and early arrivals will like the paid parking lot directly across the street.
Norcal players are friendly and convivial and the atmosphere is one of friendly competition and social joy. International Ref Dr. Azmy Ibrahim presides with outstanding umpires at his direction. NATT underwrites activity fees for the UC Berkeley Golden Bears Table Tennis Club in exchange for the hall, so your attendance here supports Collegiate Table Tennis.
