AYTTO made its premier presence at the 12th Annual Asian American Festival returning back on Saturday September 10 2022 to Boston Common for first time since the onset of the pandemic. This year festival hosted by Asian American Association of Boston also coincides with the actual start of the lunar celebration of the Mid-Autumn Festival and has drawn a diversity of professional performers and over 50 ethnic food vendors and cultural groups from all over the Greater Boston area.
Once the tables were relocated to high traffic area of the Commons, both youths and adults from the community were drawn to a gorgeous sunny day of ping pong fun. Spectators were also invited to challenge against Team USA National Junior athlete Krish Ghandi.
Special thanks to Pongspace.com and the National Collegiate Table Tennis Association for mobilizing their volunteers to help make this a successful event. Shout out to AYTTO MA chapter coordinator Jasper Wong for assistance with planning and special thanks to the Westford Table Tennis Club for lending the tables to this high visibility event!
