Darren Loverin keeps his eyes on the ball during first round action of the Man Pong tournament at NWCC Saturday.

Nori Kosalko won the coveted Ball Master trophy on Saturday as the first-ever winner of the Inaugural Man Pong Tournament.

Kosalko bested tournament brainchild and organizer Mark Edwards in the finals for the win.

On the doubles side, Mike Mehr edged out Paul Glover for the top spot after six rounds of play.

More than 20 men, playing singles and doubles on four tables, took part in the fun event, held at Northwest Community College.

“It was great use of the community college space,” Edwards said.

“This was the first but not the last event of its kind.”

Another Man Pong event is already being planned before Edwards and his family move to Tasmania this summer.
