The San Francisco Bay area is a hotbed of table tennis activity and filled with progressive, friendly devotees of the sport. Our tournaments here are highlights of our year, largely due to the goodwill and excellent play of the attendees.

Three full basketball courts with bleachers in this venue, well-lit and air conditioned with wooden floors. 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.
