That's great Dan! Tomorrow two of my kids will be there as well (Not my kids as in children and parent but I'm their coach. A rather important note :D). They'll also play in the singles event. Unfortunately I can't attend the event myself since I will be playing a tournament myself that same day.
Maybe I'll come around in the afternoon. Would be really cool if I could meet such a Super Star like you ;) In Düsseldorf I know of a really good place to grab a Döner Kebab :D
Anyway, I wish you and your boys best of luck.

Cheers,
Blue

In this competition there is a kid from Romania (the only kid from Romania I think !) his name is Movileanu Darius and he won 1 place at his age category (he is 10 years old) ! Congratulations DARIUS ! You are a champion !
I know and I played with him at our tennis hall in Targoviste - Romania .

Well some are really crazy :p (Allthough my opinion ist that every single TT-Player has lost their marbles :D)
But I am outright insane! What do you think has happened?
Exactly! I went to another tournament today :D
I'm still not home and my legs are dying. They have to be the heaviest legs in the world :D


Döner Kebab For the WIN.
Ahhhh a big THUMBS UP! Seems like somebody nows how to appreciate the deliciousness of this kind of quality food! :D
If one day you are in the very West of Germany (Ruhrgebiet and Rheinland) and are desperate to know where you can find the best Döner Kebab you know who might be the right man for the job ;)

Hey Blue great to meet you last weekend! Awesome pic! :)

What a tournament, so much fun, so many kids were inspired and I think this event will make them completely addicted to table tennis for the rest of their life's!! Lets hope we can pull through our plan of a TTD reunion at the World Championships in 2017! :D

Awesome video Dan, really liked it!

It reminded me about how much fun those kind of trips were always when I still played actively. Lots of people, good matches and great atmosphere - what could be better for young kids playing the sport :)

P.S. The music couldn't have been better for this video :) Tobu is always a great choice!

Hey ES, thanks I am glad you liked it :)

Totally I agree with you, going on the trip myself reminded me of the great times I use to have when travelling to camps etc. Haha yes thanks for the inspiration, I love Tobu music!

Wow that is very nicely made! I met the media dude behind this video. A cool guy he also does the marketing for Borussia Dusseldorf club I believe to. Good memories at andro Kids Open!

In terms of quality i don't see a big difference.
:)
Nice editing.

But it just watched both on my mobile so i couldn't see very detailed.

Hey Joshy! Welcome to TTD and yes you are right we spoke a lot and was on the subject of Ma Long and Zhang Jike a lot :) Your coach Blue is an awesome guy! Keep working hard!

See you around!
