Sandy Mason is the General Manager of the Ambridge TTC, but much, much more than that. Sandy is much more interested in biking, hiking, gardening and walking than playing table tennis. However, she does enjoy watching good table tennis matches, especially of our players at the US Open. As a retired public school teacher and principal of an alternative school, Sandy brings her life-long teaching experiences and public relations skills into the Melody Ballroom. It’s her calm, kind, people-pleasing manner that players notice and appreciate at the front desk of the Ambridge TTC. Sandy signs players up for classes, lessons, tournaments, and all other activities at the club. She runs the front desk, taking care of players who come in for their first time or the regulars who have been with the club for over 4 years. When people want to talk about something other than their Forehand loops and Hasagawa serves, Sandy’s there for all of us. Whether you need the first aid kit, a drink of cold water, or to sign-up for the upcoming class that’s going to change your life, Sandy is the person in charge. Sandy keeps the club going with snacks, flowers, 500 balls off the floor into the containers, classes working smoothly, scheduling all the lessons, set-ups and tear-downs, and all the physical operations of the Melody Ballroom. The Ambridge TTC thanks Sandy for her outstanding job and appreciates her friendly, kind manner at the front desk. Sandy’s manner sets the fun, easy-going tone, and peaceful atmosphere that the club is known for. Thanks for running the greatest table tennis club in Portland, Sandy!
