An Enjoyable Korean Tournament

20130731130005      I have gone to Korea for training and tournament for numerous times.  I went there again last week from 27 July to 1 Aug for joining the 2013 Korea PTT Open.

The tournament was held at a training centre for disabled in Incheon, Korea.  The centre including the accommodation, practice room, competition hall and canteen is all wheelchairs accessible.  Apart from being modernly furnished, it was very convenient for all disabled players as all facilities gathered in one complex.   We did not need to take transport for competition or meals.
