The long standing giant round robin tournament has become a well-known favorite for players from across the US and the world, with the main event selling out weeks before the entry deadline. Confirmed entries into this year’s competition include recent 2017 Butterfly Arnold Table Tennis Challenge and defensive player Jian Li (2682), 2016 Badger Open champion Ruichao Chen (2690), 2015 Cary Cup champion Jishan Liang (2669) and perennial Westchester Table Tennis champion Kai Zhang (2662).

High level competition has become a mainstay of the annual Cary Cup competition and 2017 will be no different.

Triangle Table Tennis will host the Cary Cup directly after the 2017 US National Team Trials and the 2017 Spring High Performance Camp, both which will take place the week prior. Players contemplating competing at the Cary Cup should also consider arriving to Raleigh, NC early to participate in the camp.

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.
