Thanks for letting us know about the training session, None of our group is able to attend. We are still playing with about 6 members who come fairly regularly. Also enjoy seeing some of my friends in the pictures from the tournaments.

Subject: Moving day for the Bartlesville Table Tennis Association


Greetings:

Well, our days of playing at the American Christian School have ended! I have enjoyed the 8 years that we have been playing there. I have met many fine people who were treasured friends.

Tomorrow on Saturday, Sept 8, the movers will take our tables to the Washington County Adult Center at 300 E Angus. On Sunday, Sept 9, several of our members will meet at the Center and begin taking apart 3 (three) of our tables and then assembling them in one of the rooms. The entry to the room is difficult for our tables that are 5 feet wide and the carriage is 22 inches and 2 right angle turns are necessary through a narrow passage way. Confusing? Come and see! Hopefully we will be able to play on them on Tuesday, the 11th. One of our tables will be stored in another room where we can play if needed. The fifth table will be stored in a garage behind the Center.

The Center is located about 3 blocks West of HWY 75 in Dewey OK. If one is proceeding North on HWY 75, proceed North of the first traffic light, which is at Durham, about 2 blocks and turn west at the corner South of the Sinclair gasoline station on Angus. The Center is located in a building that was once an Elementary School.

Since we are renting our space for $40 per month, it is not necessary to be over 60 years of age. We can still bring our children.

Call if these directions are confusing.

The Bartlesville Table Tennis Association was formed in 1968.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Below is an article from Tim Boggan about the history of the Bartlesville club from a 1976 article:

Jim Taylor gives us a little history of the Bartlesville, OK TTA and its successful Junior Program (TTT, Sept.-Oct., 1976, 10).
The BTTA was formed in a relatively prosperous community of 30,000 in 1968.
Though on the average only 10-12 memberships were issued yearly, a third of them to children, the Club somehow stayed in existence.
Then, in 1964, Taylor had the opportunity to teach table tennis at the YWCA to a group of 4th, 5th, and 6th grade youngsters.
Given the Ys connections with elementary schools and its credibility with parents, Taylor and his friend Cliff Smith had an initial class enrollment of 36 students.
In the last two years, a total of 364 youngsters [198 boys, 166 girls] have participated in the program in basic classes, intermediate level classes, school leagues, summer leagues, open sessions, junior-high team matches, and state and national tournaments.
Emphasis is on the younger children, age 9-12, and of these, says Taylor, about 50% of the broad cross section can play well enough to enjoy playing, and probably only 10 to 15% will have the ability and desire to become tournament caliber players.
In the 9, 10, & 11-year-old age groups our girls are superior to the boys (the Oklahoma U-11 champion is a Bartlesville Club girl).
At age 12, the boys become better than the girls.
Saturday morning sessions stress the basics, after which the most promising players, perhaps as many as 40 or 50, are urged to stay and play in the afternoons, get on school teams that foster sprite de corps, and play seriously at the BTTA Club.
