MSCS table tennis league

Welcome to the official page of the unofficial table tennis league of MSCS at UIC (established September 19th, 2014)! The official table tennis table is located in the grad lounge, SEO 736. If you wish to play, just come on in, find a partner, and get busy. Everyone (who can get into the lounge) is welcome to join!

The 3rd annual MSCS department Ping-Pong tournament was a rousing success, with 16 participants plus about a dozen spectators. And for the first time, we had competitors from Faculty, Staff, and Students! This year the format was a doubles tournament, which provided more participation for competitors and more entertainment for spectators. The 2004 MSCS department champions are Nghiem N and Roman S, who won all three of their matches en route to the title. Congratulations!
