One of the highlights of this 13th anniversary was the Sports Tournament. All outlets from Tropical Group including Tropical Restaurant, Coco Bistro Restaurant, Black Penny Villas, and Ubud Padi Villas participated in this tournament. The first tournament was held on Thursday, November 23rd, 2023 with table tennis for the first game. Table tennis, also known as ping-pong was chosen because it is an exciting game that requires both speed and strategic planning, as well as energic team.
The aim of the game is to hit the ball back and forth over a net, with the ball landing on the opponent’s side of the table. Points are awarded when the opponent fails to return the ball or hits it out of bounds. Points in table tennis are scored when the opponent fails to return the ball. A point is also awarded to the serving player if the opponent hits the ball into the net or out of bounds. The first player to reach 11 points wins the game.
In this table tennis match, eight teams competed to win the first prize. Each team was represented by two players, male and female. Each of them stands on either side of a table and hits a small lightweight ball across the table using paddles.
