全国ベテラン卓球東郷大会

Held annually during the first weekend of September, Yurihama`s first National Convention of Table Tennis Veterans was devised in 1978 by Tomoyoshi Sakaguchi, a Fujitsu native eager to promote table tennis. During this two-day tournament, matches are held between both group and individual competitors. As an extra perk, early September is the peak season for Yurihama`s Twentieth Century pears, allowing participants to enjoy a refreshing treat, as well as the town`s famous hot springs, while attending the event.

卓球の普及発展に力を尽くした坂口友吉氏(藤津出身)が考案し、1978(昭和53)年に第1回大会を開催。競技は、男女の団体・個人で2日間にわたって熱戦が繰り広げられます。この時期は、二十世紀梨の出荷の最盛期。選手は本場の梨や温泉を楽しみながら、卓球を通して交流の輪を広げています。大会は9月の第1土・日曜日です。
