Continued Success in Europe



At the Angby International Table Tennis tournament in Stockholm (November 3-5), Matthew Lehmann had the home court advantage with his Angby club cheering him to victory in the Mens Category 1 Singles.   In other play, Matthew took the eventual winner of the U21 Men's singles to the fifth game before bowing out in the second round of Men's U21.

Matthew will continue to train in Sweden this month and compete in the Stockholm Closed, as well as the ITTF Swedish Open, before returning to Bulgaria for team match play.

2016-2017 Season Table Tennis Awards
&
Annual General Meeting






Our Annual General Meeting was a big hit on Thursday, Oct. 5th. With such a big turnout, it was to my surprise that everyone came on time, which turned out to be an exciting and organized AGM. Ronnie Edwards, our Executive Director, was a little upset that so many people came and ate most of the food before he could get his hands on some himself. Everyone knows how the AGM goes, we do the awards ceremony and then discuss what’s in store for the up-coming season. There were a lot of familiar faces we haven’t seen in a while, so it took some time for everyone to get settled in and focused on the meeting.

Starting with the awards presentations, can I just say what we were all thinking? Wow did Biruk Bekele look handsome! He really rocked that blue suit. Congrats on that bronze medal at Nationals Biruk! Biruk and 16 other athletes - 17 including the coach - received the Order of Excellence award. A few people were unable to make it, but they still deserved it nonetheless. Speaking of someone who was unable to make it, Jeremy Tran had one of the biggest nights of his life! Winning not one, not two, but five awards! That’s got to be some kind of record? One of the first awards he won was first place in the League standings, with Alex Mendoza, Czar Caguoia, Naomi Tran and myself behind him. Biruk, showing off that flashy blue suit, came up to receive the Pro-Open Circuit Singles Overall Champion award with Jeremy Tran taking in second place. It’s great to see that the “Active 4 Life” (>40 Years) athletes are still working hard and competing with the same amount, or with maybe even more intensity, than us younger athletes and that Alex Mendoza finally rose to the top and beat out Michal Rybak for the overall Over 40 Category. Youth Singles Overall Champion was Jeremy Tran and Yunyang Deng in second place…with Jeremy winning another award, his sister Naomi was getting a little dizzy going back and forth in his place. Congrats to Ben Vu for being the Cadet Singles Overall Champion and Sparsh Agrawal for coming in for a close second.

Now, on to the bigger awards.

One of our Filipino members shocked everyone and gained 694 points this season winning the Most Improved Player award - congratulations to Irwin Raymundo. Junior Male of the Year went to, you guessed it, Jeremy Tran. Junior Female of the Year went to a small but energetic young athlete who has always been dedicated to table tennis and was shocked when she won the award, Ms. Anna Liu. Volunteer of the Year went to a very deserving coach who helped Coach Arvin and I out a lot last season, Mr. Meng Yu. For the Mike Partyka award, I’d like to give thanks to the Executive and to everyone else for the endless support and for honoring me with this award. The Liam Barclay Junior Sportsmanship Award went to two individuals who were always in the gym and who were eager to learn and play…these two athletes absolutely deserved this award! Congrats to Kieran Buchberger and Nibusha Loganathan. Another young athlete who loves the sport and was very dedicated to the league was Hongjun Feng. Congrats for winning the “Ironman” award for the most matches played in the District League last season. Everyone should follow Hongjun’s example and come out to league every Friday night! Last, but not least, Jeremy Tran winning the last award there was to win…the “Player of the Year Award”. Jeremy may have been a little distant from the gym at the start of the season but for the second half of the season he was one of the most dedicated athletes. It was a bummer you had to miss the AGM, but it was clear that your hard work throughout the season paid off. Congrats again and keep up the hard work!

Congratulations once again to all the winners of last year’s season. You guys and gals should be proud of your accomplishments. For the people who didn’t receive an award, this should give you motivation to get in the gym more and work even harder this upcoming season. Let’s all have a goal to become more present in the gym and more focused when we’re at practice and to keep a consistent level of intensity throughout the entire season.

The last portion of the meeting was dedicated to the annual update of the Executive and Committee teams. Somehow, my mom unintentionally got me onto the Executive while knocking herself out. There were a couple changes to the Executive members this year. Royle Derbitsky went from Secretary to Secretary/Treasurer. Don Kokan went from being the Athlete Representative to one of the Member’s at Large. While my mom wanted the Athlete Representative position, I was nominated in her place because only an athlete could have the position, sorry mom! The last change to the Executive was adding a second Member at Large position that went to long-time member Gregory Chan. Darek Mikita, Greg Dzioba and Osama Zaki retained their senior positions. A complete listing can be found to the top-right side of www.mtta.ca.

Overall, this was one of the more successful AGMs we have had in a long time and it was a terrific way to start off the 2017-2018 season. Hope to see everyone out at the gyms and tournaments!

"Lefty-Lehmann" Reaches Podium in Europe for 1st Time!



This past October 14-15 weekend, Matthew Lehmann from Winnipeg competed in the Albena Open on the shores of the Black Sea in Bulgaria. Matthew had former M.T.T.A. Head Coach Milcho Uzunov in his corner as he reached the semi-finals in the Men’s Open event against world ranked players from Bulgaria, Russia, Ukraine and Romania. Coach Uzunov said Matthew’s attack was very effective as he won all three of his qualifying group matches and then three more elimination-round matches until bowing out in the semi’s. Matthew now returns to his Austrian training base, as he prepares for matches with his Swedish club in Stockholm. However, he will return to Bulgaria later in the fall to compete with Milcho for the “Nedelino” Team in the Bulgarian Super League. They will both be eagerly watched by former M.T.T.A. Head Coach George Damianov. Both Milcho and George miss Canada and their former players and pass on their regards to Terry, William, Freddy, Victor, Carol-Jean, Victoria, Gordon, Euwe, Jacie, Naomi, Jeremy, Phuong, Tina, Bryanna, Kaitlyn, Shaelynn…Milcho says they apologize to those they missed as they had such a good time with the lot of you and he was saddened that so many had quit our great sport.

Table Tennis Season Start Up and Annual General Meeting

H
ello all Manitoba Table Tennis enthusiasts. Well, school is back in class so that means that table tennis is not far behind! We are still awaiting word from several school divisions on some facilities…but, in general, the gyms, time-slots and programming will be about the same as last year. I hope that most clubs will open the week of September 18th and our first tournament is scheduled for November 18th.

There will be some minor fee increases this year due to both some funding cuts from the Provincial government to sport as well as some school divisions increasing user fees. MORE INFORMATION WILL BE POSTED IN THE COMING WEEKS AS PROGRAMMING FINALIZED.

THURSDAY OCTOBER 5TH, 6 PM, SPORT FOR LIFE CENTRE, 145 PACIFIC AVENUE: ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING AND AWARDS PRESENTATION FOR 2016-2017 SEASON…HOPE TO SEE YOU OUT!

Executive Director
