With the 2017 Butterfly North American Tour beginning soon, the Canada Cup Burnaby, and Canada Cup Markham, will be the first two stops for the tour. Since adding these events as tour stops, there have a few changes for the Canada Cup series. Some of the changes include open events for Canada Cup Burnaby and Canada Cup Markham, more overall prize money, added spots for the Canada Hopes Challenge, and adding more qualifying points.

The Changes

One of the first changes to the series is that the first two events for the Canada Cup are going to be opened to not just Canadian residents and citizens, but to other countries as well. The only competition for the series that will be closed is going the Canada Cup Finals. The entries for 2017 Butterfly Canada Cup Finals will be by invitation only, and will be the top 7 cadets, 7 juniors, and 7 senior players along with three “wild card” players.

Next, there is going to be higher prize money purse for the events. A total of $5,000 CAD will be awarded at each competition, Butterfly Canada Cup Burnaby and Butterfly Canada Cup Markham. That will be a total of $10,000 CAD given for the combined events. The prize money will be broken down as follows:

Finishing Position Men’s Singles Women’s Singles
1st Place 1,000 C$ 1,000 C$
2nd place 700 C$ 700 C$
3rd place 500 C$ 500 C$
4th place 300 C$ 300 C$

Serving as the qualifier for the ITTF North America Hopes Challenge, the Canada Hopes Challenge will also be by invitation to participate in.
