Danny Seemiller created the “Elite Event” at the first ever St. Louis Open to encourage and develop American table tennis players.
Fourth seed in the “Elite Singles” event, Joey Cochran (2399) was the least likely out of the top 4 seeds to take home the championship title.
Restricted to only U.S. citizens, this event will feature some of today’s most dedicated American table tennis players.
Only U.S. Olympic eligible players (US Citizens) may enter the unique “Elite Event” which features the most prize money out of any of the events at the 4-star tournament ($2000 for the winner, $6,200 overall).
