Sign Up for the Hardbat Championships

FAIRBANKS, AK-You can sign up for the third annual Jerry Smith Alaska Hardbat Championships that's on April fourth and fifth. Fairbanks Interior Table Tennis is putting on this event in the Patty Center.

Now hardbat is a little different than table tennis. Hardbat paddles don't have the spongy layer on traditional table tennis racquets. There will be limited doubles and open doubles events, along with recreational singles, A and B singles, and Open events. Open singles are for those serious Forest Gumper types at the advanced level and recreational singles are for those who just love the game.

The deadline to register is tomorrow, Friday, at 8pm.

Proceeds of the event will go to the American Diabetes Association in honor Jerry Smith, who passed away in 2009.
