      Katz w/ trophies from USATT event         

    State Junior champ David Katz, moved up the USATT  ratings
    ladder again with a win in the 25 player U-1650 event at the NY TT Federation's  tournament in Chinatown. 

    13 year old David got his start and initial coaching a couple years ago at Fairfield TTC and often plays there on Saturdays, and also at home and the Stamford JCC with his father Sheldon.

    He won 8 out of 9 matches and expects his 1456 rating to go over 1600, moving him up a few notches from his recent #20 spot on the CT.TTA Fairfield/Middletown rankings (all ages) on our ratings page.

    POSTER: -------poster3 click here for a printable POSTER :
    Please POST copies of this poster in places you work, shop, go to school etc. 

    Copies are usually available from Dave at the club too.

     (Depending on your browser and printer settings, you may find it easier to save the page as an image
     and import it into a graphics or publishing program so you can print it exactly 
    as you wish with correct size and borders.)
    People often ask how we advertise the clubs. Newspaper and TV advertising costs thousands.

     We depend on word of mouth and the web site because other advertising just costs
     too much for such an inexpensive sport. 
    These posters and available bumper stickers and T-shirts are affordable ways to attract new players.
