The fourth annual Table Tennis Tech Tournament, T4Youth, is kicking off this fall and you and your company are invited! Chicagoland technology companies will be competing to stake their claim as the #1 tech table tennis team.
Our goal is to unite Chicago tech professionals around a common passion for table tennis in order to raise money and support future generations of technologists. Once again, all of the proceeds will be benefitting Chicago Tech Academy.
The Tournament takes place in November of 2017. Whether you are playing on a team or spectating your entry in to the event includes food, drinks, and opportunities to win prizes and raffle items.
Chicago Tech Academy (ChiTech) is a non-profit, 4-year contract school located in University Village, and was founded to inspire, educate, and connect the next generation of leaders. ChiTech seeks to increase the number of minority and low income students that pursue science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) in college and careers.
What better way to demonstrate your table tennis skills than with a group of your favorite coworkers and friends. Show other Chicago companies that your team has what it takes to be crowned this year’s T4Youth Champion!
