2017 Butterfly Cary Cup: Bright Future for Triangle Table Tennis & Cary Cup
Having opened less than three years ago, Triangle Table Tennis (TTT) has solidified itself as one of the best table tennis training facilities in the US. With impeccable wood flooring, Olympic level lighting, and space for up to 40 tables, the facility is a USA table tennis National Center of Excellence and provides the perfect backdrop to high level competitions and training camps. Proving the center’s ability to handle multiple high level events in close succession, TTT successfully held the 2017 USA National Team Trials directly prior to the Butterfly Cary Cup, bringing in over 300 players from across the United States to the facility over the last two weeks. With ample supplemental amenities and seating for spectators, competitors, coaches and families, the 30,000 square foot facility easily and comfortably supports the athletes and their entourages who travel to North Carolina to participate in these high level events.

After hosting the Butterfly Cary Cup for the first time in 2015 as a brand new facility, TTT has not only improved upon its status as a beautiful space in the past two years but also as a high level training center. Many TTT players and employees found success in the 2017 Butterfly Cary Cup, beating out competitors from clubs across the east coast with longer histories. Xizi (Stephanie) Sun who won Division B of the main round robin event calls Cary, North Carolina home. Similarly, TTT coach and employee AJ Carney took home the Hardbat title. With newly hired head coach Brian Pace at the helm, TTT looks forward to developing its own crop of talented elite players in the years to come.

Entries for the Butterfly Cary Cup main event fill up weeks before the entry deadline. For those interested in taking part in next year’s Cary Cup, please consider signing up as soon as the entry form is released.

Continual coverage of the 2017 Butterfly Cary Cup and stories about the athletes will be available at ButterflyOnline.com, or via Butterfly North America’s Twitter and Facebook pages.
