The 5th ‘Si Yuan Cup’ Table Tennis Tournament
in Celebration of the Chinese New Year of the Rooster
Si Yuan Ping-Pong Club (SYPC) was established by Nottingham Confucius Institute in 2013 with the aim of promoting friendship and understanding between the UK and China through table tennis, China’s national sport. The club started from just a few members and grew into a well-established volunteer-run table tennis club with over 70 dedicated members attending regular training and outreach sessions. To celebrate the Chinese New Year of the Rooster, SYPC will hold its 5th ‘Si Yuan Cup’ Table Tennis Tournament on Sunday 29th Jan 2017. All table tennis players, be they old or young, Chinese or non-Chinese nationals, beginner or advanced, are welcome to enter the tournament. To promote Table Tennis to the wider community, SYPC will also provide free taster sessions to interested parties.
