It will be open to Pangasinan residents only, for female and male 18 up to 64 years of age, titled or non-titled, with a maximum of 50 players per playing date.

Operania and PSDMC deputy officer Marlon Domalanta stressed that health and safety protocols must be observed at all times, including mandatory submission of negative antigen tests by all contestants and coaches prior to the game in coordination with Provincial Health Office.

The games will be played weekly: Table tennis and badminton every Friday while chess every Saturday. Competition will run until October 2 this year.  (Jesus Garcia Jr.)
