The Inaugural Paddle Battle featured fantastic entertainment from both players and attendees. The tournament was filled with smiles and laughing as new ping pong players and those who had played before all came together to support Mental Health. There was great food and great conversations to be had all while the sounds of ping pong balls bounced all around. Take a look at some of this year’s Paddle Battle Photos and check out all the fun that was had!
