McKENZIE (August 24) — The Bethel University Non-Sanctioned World Table Tennis Championships were held in Crisp Arena Saturday during the City of McKenzie’s Southern Fried and Sweet Tea Festival.

Thirty of the nation’s top-level table tennis athletes competed for an unprecedented $3,000 in the first-ever world championship of its kind. Non-sanctioned table tennis contests generally offer no prize money, and even sanctioned table tennis competitions in the U.S. rarely pay over a couple of hundred dollars for national events.

Thanks to a total of 15 sponsors from the McKenzie and Carroll County area, athletes from as far as China came to compete for top cash prizes in this event hosted by the McKenzie Table Tennis Club.

Winners and runners-up in each division:

Division A: Winner — Liedy Handoko ($1,000); Runner-Up — Spencer Lam ($500)

Division B: Winner — Chris Hardin ($500); Runner-Up — Tamoko Gose ($250)

Division C: Winner — Zach Moy ($250); Runner-Up — Aurius Zemaititis ($125)

Division D: Winner — Alex Klyuyenko ($125); Runner-Up — Christian Lee ($75)

Division E: Winner — Mark Kizer ($100); Runner-Up — Blake Crittendon ($75)
