USATT's High Performance Committee in consultation with USATT and the Athletes Advisory Council have decided to introduces the Table Tennis All-American Awards for those US Junior and Cadet players who are excelling on the national table tennis stage.
A total of 80 awards will be granted for Junior and Cadet athletes for both genders, with the National Ranking Tournament points system deciding the winners.
The top 10 in each gender's category (in each age group) will receive the Table Tennis All-American Awards, while the 11-20 places in the ranking will be awarded Table Tennis All -American, Honorable Mention.
USATT firmly believe that it is time to further recognize the hard work and achievements of our young rising talents, and hope that the Table Tennis All-American Awards will be a welcome step ahead in rewarding those players who are passionate for the sport and hungry to reach their goals.
The initial recipients of the inaugural awards will be announced at a special award presentation at this year's US Open Table Tennis Championships in Fort Worth, Texas, December 17-21, 2019.
