2022 U.S. National Table Tennis Championships Trophies

 

Seventeen gold medals earned thus far at the U.S. Nationals

 

FORT WORTH, TEXAS – The Downtown Fort Worth convention center is filled with the rumbling of bouncing ping pong balls as the U.S. National Table Tennis Championships have started. 

 

Over 750 players are competing to become 2022 National Champions in 112 events at the event, including the very first Parkinson Events ever held at the U.S. Nationals. 

 

On day one, National Champions in event categories from under 13 singles to 65 & over doubles were determined in the main arena.

 

Notable gold medalists with a undeniable opportunity to take the 2022 U.S. Nationals Men's and Women's Singles gold were day one U-21 National Champions Sharon Alguetti and Amy Wang. Both athletes are fresh off winning the National Team Trials at Texas Wesleyan University this past week.

 

Alguetti fended off Sid Naresh for the U-21 gold, Naresh had just taken Alguetti to seven games at the Men’s National Team Trials. Naresh put up a valiant effort taking the first game at the Nationals, but momentum shifted after game one in Alguettis' favor for a 3-1 victory to secure his first gold medal of the tournament.

 

Shifting the focus to the Men’s Singles and Men’s Doubles, Alguetti is already locked in to prepare for the major events starting on to Day 2, “At the end of the day, it’s every match, every event is for its own. I have to forget this win after tonight and start Men’s Singles and Men’s Doubles tomorrow which are the bigger events for me.”
