PACA's Middle School had the privilege to watch Brazil's # 1 Table Tennis player, Cazuo Matsumoto, give a demonstration in the school's gym. Cazuo has represented Brazil at the 2008 and 2012 olympics in the sport.
According to the ITTF website (http://www.ittfranking.com/cgi-bin/ttplayer.cgi?number=105928&lang=0&format=summary), Cazuo is ranked # 1 in Latin America and ranked # 92 in the world. Along side with Cazuo, he brought along Katia (# 5 in Brazil) and Vitor (# 1 non-federated open player).
It was a great opportunity to see a very explosive and fast pace sport live in our gym. After showing some techniques, Cazuo gave 3 chances to several students to try to return 1 of his serves. A few managed to put a ball back into play winning an autographed paddle rubber, but all had great fun trying.
A special thank you to Macarrão Alfa (http://www.macarraoalfa.com.br/) for making this possible.
Buy your tickets to this year's play by contacting Mrs. Helen Morosov (click here).
Tickets are R$25,00 per adult and R$10,00 per student.
