Butterfly Badger Open: Bigger and Better in 2016

by Barbara Wei

On September 16th-18th, the 9th annual Butterfly Badger Open, one of the nation’s biggest and longest standing table tennis tournaments, will take place in Franklin, WI (15 miles from downtown Milwaukee) at the Milwaukee County Sports Complex. A Midwest favorite, the Butterfly Badger Open will feature the same stunning conditions from 2015, including 45 fully barriered tables, incredible lighting, large feature courts and free lunch for all players. However, new for this year, additional prize money will be awarded for the Open Singles champion, with $3,000 on offer.

From humble beginnings as a 2-star tournament in 2008, the Butterfly Badger Open has grown in both importance and prominence in the Midwest and nationally. Attracting top players from across the east coast, Midwest and south, the Butterfly Badger Open’s previous champions include Canadian Olympian Eugene Wang and 2015 Butterfly Tour Double Crown Ruichao Chen (LYTTC – New Jersey).

Table tennis professionalism is the cornerstone of the Butterfly Badger Open’s continued success. With Butterfly supporting the growth and development of table tennis in the Midwest, the Butterfly Badger Open continues to thrive. Tournament director Linda Leaf notes that “Butterfly tables and other support that Butterfly provides helps make the Badger Open a more ‘classy’ event year after year.”
