On March 4th, 2006
twenty three interested players gathered at El-Rio Recreation Center
to discuss important to our local table tennis community issues. As
a result of the meeting, the Southern Arizona Table Tennis
Association (SATTA) was formed. The newly formed association
will incorporate southern Arizona clubs as associated members.
We have voted and approved our new constitution and elected officers
that will keep association running.
Attn. Misha Chernobelskiy. 933B N. Desert Ave., Tucson, AZ 85711
To this day we are self-funded and still entirely run by volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering or
have any ideas on how to improve our association, we encourage you
to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 520-461-8656.
Our mission is to
promote table tennis in the Tucson and the
Arizona as a popular indoor activity and keenly competitive
game. We want to make our website a forum for all local players,
keep them informed of ongoing activities, and to support table
tennis and local players in their progress.
