The India Community Center's (ICC) Fourth Annual Table Tennis Fundraiser will be held on May 20 from 5-8 p.m. in Milpitas. The event will include a social hour with coaches and celebrity players and a chance to test your table tennis skills against ICC trainees. Proceeds from the fundraiser benefit ICC's Table Tennis Junior Training Program - which has provided training to 2012 Olympic hopefuls Ariel Hsing, Timothy Wang, and Lily Zhang over the past six years.
"The ICC's Table Tennis program is being taken to a whole new level this year; with former Olympians training 2012 Olympic hopefuls," said Rajul Sheth, Director of Sports and Recreation at ICC. "We are so excited about the continued growth of our Table Tennis program, and our annual Table Tennis Fundraiser is instrumental to our providing the best training atmosphere possible."
The ICC's facility was opened in 2005 and meets all international standards. This facility is also home to 23 nationally ranked table tennis players as well as the three 2012 Olympic hopefuls. There are more than 100 kids who participate in their Junior Training Program and numerous others who come to play. In addition to their table tennis program, the ICC also has roughly 350 seniors who are members as well as free medical, tax, and legal clinics for members.
