A USATT SANCTIONED FOUR STAR EVENT
This fall, the JOOLA North American Tour returns to Berkeley, California to kick off the new season!
UC Berkeley’s ‘Golden Bears’ Table Tennis Club has been instrumental in the success of this event year after year. This highly energetic and well-organized college club is outstanding in its support of the tournament, providing manpower, the playing hall, and an enthusiastic spirit!
Our venue for the weekend consists of three full wood-floor basketball courts at the Recreational Sports Facility, a clean, modern facility. Highly respected international Referee Dr. Azmy Ibrahim and his first-rate crew of umpires will be present to ensure professional environment.
We’re looking forward to seeing you at the Berkeley Open!
