Ping Pong

 Game On Ottawa!

 

Put your accuracy and agility skills to the test in OSSC’s 14-week Ping Pong league!

Join with a partner or sign-up individually and we will pair you up! Teams of 2 will have a 15-minute warm-up before playing 4 games per evening (4 singles matches per team). Whether you're Recreational or Advanced, there is a skill level for everyone!  A new format for singles play has been created to adhere to COVID-19 facility requirements.

Teams and Individual players will register in an "Open" skill division. Teams and Individual players will then be placed into an appropriate skill division based on the ladder format results from week 1 to ensure the best possible experience! The first league games will then commence in week 2!


Players are required to bring their own racquet and OSSC will provide the ping pong balls. 


Registration Deadline is Wednesday, May 12th @ midnight!
