The Second annual Ping pong tournament by Lachhin Foundation Inc. which was hosted by Lachhin Gurung and supported by Rockmanch2, US Nepal Sports & Cultural Development Inc and Miss Nepal North America, that was held on 4th of August 2018 in Queens,New York City at BQE Billiards. It was a fun filled Saturday afternoon where everyone showed up with high spirits and hopes of winning this prestigious title. It was quite a turn out and the room was full of positive energy and excitement.

Sports is a great medium to connect with people. We can use it as a means to bring the community together and build a stronger bond to support and motivate each other. Life can be very stressful living in this big city. So, this is our humble attempt to give people a reason to unwind, relax and compete in a healthy environment. Plus, it is a great workout.”
After the successful ping pong tournament last year, we presented you with yet another successful tournament this year. We were gathered by friends, families and new players this year from all over. It keeps getting better every year and we are so pleased to announce that our last year’s proceedings benefited a kidney transplant patient. Similarly, this year we are considering contributing our proceeding to a similar noble cause where we are able to make a difference on a personal level.

We were very grateful to have Shankar Gautam, General secretary from All Nepal Table Tennis Association among us at the event. We are very thankful to him for blessing us with his presence and motivating our participants. Our winners were very pleased to receive their victory medals & Cash  from the honorary chief guest.

Our winners this year, from the Women’s category are Tenzin Dolma (1st place) Yangzee Sherpa (2nd place) and Prakriti Kansakar (3rd place). Likewise, in Men’s category, Saurav Rai (1st place) Tenzing Gelek (2nd place) and Dhendup Sherpa (3rd place).

A big congratulation to all the participants as this is our effort to foster a healthy environment where everyone’s a winner. Get ready for next year’s tournament. Let’s take this tournament to another level and turn up the heat for 2019. So, get your gear up and start practicing. You could be the next champion.
