Paddle Royale

Kauai held its very 1st Annual Ping Pong Paddle Royale tournament in memory of Bob Sato. We had a great turnout of competitors and spectators for the occasion, with lots of good fun and good times. The tournament started with a wild card round to determine who would fill the last two remaining spots for the main event of 32 competitors. John Enns claimed the Ping Pong Royale Title, along with a grand cash prize of $200. In 2nd place was Jim Inghan and in 3rd Pierre Byman. Big mahalos to all our sponsors for the event: Warehouse 3540, Dark Roost Coffee, Kauai Beer Co, Hawaii window cleaners and all our food vendors. Till next time!

The start of the competition, everyone friendly and ready to compete!
