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.

    Misha Chernobelskiy - President

    David Wesley - Vice-President, Treasurer

    Alex Chernobelskiy - Finance and Marketing Director
                                         - Junior Development Director

    Steve Rivera - Public Relations

    Barbara Burnison - Secretary

Mailing Address:
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 or call 520-461-8656.


Our mission is to promote table tennis in the Tucson and the Southern 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.
