A word from Joe Martin

Greetings,

The WCQT in Bryant Park, NYC, this past weekend produced a winning team to represent the FPUSA in the next World Championship, whenever it will be held. The winning team is the LBNY team of Jean-Pierre Subrenat, Xavier Thibaud, and Eric Bertin. It was a very well run event and we very much appreciate the efforts of LBNY that hosted it.
Read about the weekend's events here.

See you on the courts,

Joe Martin, President FPUSA
