On Friday, September 23, Lifetime Developments and Zancor Homes' annual Smashed Ping Pong event returns for its 9th year. Sponsors from across the development industry are supporting an initiative that in 2019 raised over $450,000 alone, and which now totals $1,825,000 over eight years.

The table tennis tournament features 32 entrants, with a $1,000 grand prize for winner. The tournament will be followed by a catered after party, which brings together some 400 attendees to support a half-dozen charities that serve vulnerable and at-risk communities. Raising money for Make-A-Wish Foundation, Mackenzie Health Foundation, Scalabrini International Migration Network, SickKids, Coretellucci Children's Charity, and Lifeline (Lifetime's Charitable Foundation), the event will bring together Toronto's real estate, development, and construction professionals for a night of paddlin' and party-going.

Some funds raised from this year’s Smashed tournament will be designated towards Lifetime Development’s newest initiative, Homecourt Advantage. In partnership with Adidas Canada, Homecourt Advantage will support the revitalization of community basketball courts across Toronto.

This year's event will be held again at REBEL nightclub.
