LAKELAND TABLE TENNIS ANNOUNCES EXPANSION OF ORANGE BLOSSOM SERIES

The Lakeland Table Tennis Association in beautiful Lakeland, Florida has announced a significant expansion of their very popular Florida Orange Blossom Table Tennis Series Tournaments for the 2018 season. Lakeland will host six major USATT sanctioned quality tournaments during the season in the spectacular Table Tennis Series. This is an increase from four tournaments in the series during the past several years. All the two-star sanctioned tournaments will be held at the Simpson Park Community Center in Lakeland, Florida. The tournament will have 24 Butterfly tables available for the exciting, competitive events.

GREAT 2018 SEASON!
Brad Woodington, the President of the Lakeland Table Tennis Association, emphasized the importance of continuing and expanding the series to six high quality tournaments. Athletes will earn Series Points at each of the six Lakeland tournaments, depending on what place they finish in their particular class of competition. Series points are awarded in all classes and players in each class have a real chance to earn series points and compete for the awards to be presented at the end of the 2018 season.

COLOSSAL ROUND ROBIN!
All six tournaments will utilize the popular Colossal Round Robin format, with 11 players in each class during a full tournament.
