An 11-year-old New York girl was disqualified from the 2012 U.S. National Table Tennis Championships when she opted not to play her final match, which fell on Shabbat.
Estee Ackerman of Long Island told the New York Post that "ping-pong is important to me, but my religion of Judaism is also very important to me."
Ackerman, who is ranked fourth nationally in the 8-to-11 age bracket, did not play in the match on December 21, a Friday night.
She told the Post that the scheduling was "disappointing" after she trained six months for the Las Vegas tournament. Ackerman said she does not blame event organizers for the scheduling conflict.
Ackerman routinely beats players in their 20s and 30s, according to the Post.
