Dear Liu Guoliang and the Chinese Table Tennis Association, 

On behalf of the USA Table Tennis Board of Directors, I am writing to welcome you to University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) and California.  It is great honor to have the world -renowned Chinese Table Tennis Team- players, coaches and officials –training at the UCLA facilities.

 We are delighted to have some members of our elite USATT Team have the opportunity to train and enjoy time with your Chinese team.  We know they will benefit a great deal – from techniques, coaching and friendship.

As Los Angeles 2028 Olympic Games comes closer, we hope you will come and visit many times to train, enjoy California weather and hospitality.

Thank you for providing the opportunity for our players to be part of this important trip.  We look forward to many more exchange opportunities in the future. As an Olympian (1960 Swimming) I understand how important it is for us all to celebrate sport -  what brings us together and to uphold Olympic values of fair play, friendship, excellence and respect.

Please accept my warm welcome from our representative Dennis Taylor, USATT General Counsel who will be in Los Angeles. I am very sad not to be able to attend the training camp and the festivities at the Nixon Library, but I am recuperating from a major surgery - complete and reverse shoulder replacement - just six weeks ago and have been advised not to travel.

I look forward to meeting you again in the future – either in China or in California.

In the Olympic Spirit,

Anne Warner Cribbs OLY

Chair – USA Table Tennis Board of Directors
