Table Tennis at TxWesU
If you need to get your sports fix on next week after the winter olympics wind down, head over to Texas Wesleyan University and watch the best table tennis players in the country compete. On March 4th and 5th, TWU is hosting the U.S. National Team Trials, with the winners representing the USA in May at the world championships in Moscow. On March 6th and 7th, the school will play host to the Leone Wesleyan Open, with $9,000 in cash and prizes and players from all over the world. Admission to both events is free.
Olympic bronze medal winner and TWU table tennis coach Jasna Rather helped convince the table tennis honchos to hold their team trials at TWU, which has won the national collegiate tennis championship every year since 1984. In some ways, Fort Worth is the table tennis capital of the U.S. because of TWU. Read more about Jasna and the team in our cover story a few years ago.
