Charity Doubles Tournament for Portland’s Homeless People
November 16, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Ambridge Charity Doubles Tournament to benefit the homeless
The Ambridge Table Tennis Club’s Charity Doubles Tournament is coming Thursday, November 16, 2017. Mira Scalpone set up and directed this tournament three years ago at the Blitz and for the past two years with us at the Ambridge. This year, all of us will continue this successful and fun event. This is a great way to help out the homeless in Portland while having a fun night of table tennis doubles. All proceeds and donations go to Saint Francis Dining Hall at 330 SE 11th. Thank you for participating.
Entry fee: None. Just bring a gently used or new coat. Or, bring a blanket, new warm socks, new underwear for both men and women, coffee cups, gloves, scarves, sleeping bags, shoes, or hat. The homeless also need silverware, cups, towels, and rags. Donate anything that might help the homeless endure the hardships of winter life on the streets.
When: Thursday 7 – 10 pm; tournament starts at 7 PM. Please show up by 6:45.
Where: The Ambridge Table Tennis Club at the Melody Ballroom; located on the corner of 6th and Alder in SE Portland.
How it works:
Choose your own partner before the tournament or choose one at the tournament. If you don’t have a partner, we can get one for you. It will be a single elimination tournament with a consolation event as well. So you will play at least two matches. Rules for doubles will be explained before the tournament begins.
One Big Event
There will be only one Big Doubles Event – Doubles for all levels. However, if you lose your first match, you will be placed in the Consolation Event. So your team will play a minimum of two matches in the tournament. Remember this is a charity event, so winning the tournament should be second to participating.
Ratings Central will be used for the ratings. No rating points will be won or lost from this tournament
Prizes: Gift cards will be awarded to the winners.
