Age Is No Matter at The Westchester Table Tennis Center's April 2017 International Tournament


Saturday's competition at the Westchester Table Tennis Center's April 2017 Tournament hosted some early action in both the under 12 years old and over 40 years old categories. In both groupings, the competitors showed that age did not matter as the action was fierce and spirited.

In the under 12 years old matches, Darius Fahimi prevailed, winning all three of his round robin matches. Coming in a close second was Jocelyn Zhou followed by Carly Googel and Zachary Jaworowski.
