By USATT | Sept. 09, 2017, 1:23 p.m. (ET)

USATT are pleased to announce the teams being considered to participate at the 2017 World Junior Table Tennis Championships in Riva Del Garda, Italy, 26 November - 2 December 2017. Teams were decided based on the following published criteria of the selection procedure:

“Athletes will be selected based on their National Team Points as calculated by combining Trials order of finish, US Open order of finish, and World Ranking points (divided by 30) calculated based on published ITTF rankings ninety (90) days before the competition. For example, the 2017 World Junior Championships will be held in December 2017, thus the World Ranking Points from the published September rankings would be used to calculate National Team points.”

The prerequisite for the final participation is, of course, an appropriate preparation for the event.
