2013 US Club ChampionshipsThe final was yet another all bay area final in the 2013 US Nationals. SVTTC (Silicon Valley Table Tennis Club) and ICC (India CommunityCenter) are both located in Milpitas, California. 12 full-time professional coaches (7 from SVTTC and 5 from ICC) came to the 2013 US Nationals to coach their players. They brought over 50 students to Las Vegas for the tournament. You could see their students all over the place. Coaches of either team did not have time to go out of the playing hall for lunches. Both clubs worked collaboratively, mostly handled by parents, to get lunch boxes for their players, coaches, and parents. Over 300 lunch boxes were ordered throughout the tournament. ICC was top seed and SVTTC the second and here is the reason.

CCCF from NY traveled only to play the Club League Finals, also Lily Yip TTC have a conflict with their main players; Adam, Cory and Judy, therefore the young promising players from Lily Yip played representing their club.  They defeat Spin Standard (related to Spin NY) by 3-0.

ICC defeated LYTTC (Lily Yip Table Tennis club in New Jersey) in the semi-finals while SVTTC defeated the defending champion CCCF (Chinese Community Center of Flushing, New York) in the other semi-finals on Friday to set up the final on the final day of the 2013 US Nationals. ICC had the upper hand on the paper and won 3-0.  The quality of the matches was extremely high throughout the finals. 

Please watch the finals action from table 1 and table 2 in Las Vegas.



USATT is proud of the participation of the having league winners from across the country.  As usual we invite all clubs in other regions to create their own league and being part of this great event. We also hope to improve the organization and production of this great event.

Thanks,

Mauricio Vergara
