Greensboro Leaders Welcome Collegiate Table Tennis Champs in North Carolina

By Andy Kanengiser

NCTTA Media Chair

People who think there’s nothing much to do besides play table tennis in Greensboro are badly mistaken.

Clearly, there’s loads of stuff to do for the NCTTA family away from the table tennis championships in that wonderful North Carolina city April 12-14.

Where to begin? Greensboro boasts at least 135 major attractions. While the table tennis games are being played on Friday, the evening time will feature a concert by country star Kenny Chesney. It’s practically next-door to the table tennis venue. The American singer-songwriter from East Tennessee is famous for hits like “When the Sun Goes Down’’ and “The Good Stuff.’’

Ok, if country music isn’t your thing, the World Championships of Irish Dancing is kicking up a storm down the street. The lively event at the Sheraton is happening the same time as 275 of North America’s best collegiate table tennis players invade Greensboro along with coaches, volunteers and fans.

If you crave other things to do, the best bet is to find out what you’re missing in Greensboro. The Greensboro Convention & Visitors Bureau invites visitors to download their handy city guide.

It tells folks tons of information about fun things to do. Want to escape the table tennis world for an hour or two? Check out the Greensboro Science Center. It’s jam-packed with a beautiful aquarium, museum and zoo. Take the kids! But grownups will enjoy the experience, too.

Hill Carrow of Sports & Properties, Inc. of Cary, N.C. is one of the people who worked hard to bring the NCTTA’s biggest tournament of the year to Greensboro.

It was  natural for Greensboro to be selected by the NCTTA board of directors. After all, Greensboro hosted the Team USA Olympic Trials for table tennis at fantastic facilities a few years ago. Some of the premier U.S. collegians booked at the NCTTA tournament for 2019 are delighted to return to the same fabulous venue they experienced in 2016.

Amy Scott, head of marketing for the Greensboro Convention & Visitors Bureau, is delighted to see hundreds of top table tennis players in her favorite city. It’s always great to host a national tournament in Greensboro, Scott says. She’s got plenty of advice at her fingertips about Greensboro, a thriving city some call Tournament Town.

“She will be glad to clue you in on the many things to do in and around Greensboro,’’ Carrow said.

But with at least 135 attractions to showcase in Greensboro, it is doubtful anybody in the NCTTA family can get to see them all (or even half) in a few days.

Perhaps, it is best to just start by enjoying a delicious North Carolina barbecue sandwich. Located off I-85, Greensboro sits 92 miles away from Charlotte or a drive of 1 hour and 27 minutes. By car, Greensboro is about 53 minutes away from Durham, home of Duke University. Duke Blue Devils players are regulars at NCTTA national championships each year.

For the all-volunteer NCTTA community, it marks their first national championship in North Carolina. In recent years, the huge collegiate tournaments have been held in Wisconsin, Texas, Illinois, Pennsylvania and Minnesota. “We are eagerly looking forward to our first visit to Greensboro,’’ says NCTTA President Willy Leparulo. “We love what we are hearing about this vibrant city in North Carolina.’’

The NCTTA championships in 2020 will return to Round Rock, Texas for the third time. Round Rockers hosted the event last in 2018 and for the first time in 2016. The city, dubbed the Sports Capital of Texas, is located near booming Austin in the Lone Star State.

For more information on the NCTTA championships in Greensboro, N.C. April 12-14, go to the website nctta.org Located near the Greensboro Coliseum, the Greensboro Convention & Visitors Bureau can be reached at 1-336-274-2282.

The 2019 iSET College Table Tennis Championships is hosted by the National Collegiate Table Tennis Association and Sports & Properties Inc. and Greensboro CVB and is one of the premier table tennis tournaments in North America featuring 6 events: Men’s and Women’s Singles and Doubles, and Men’s/Coed Teams, Women’s Teams.  The event is sponsored by iSET, Double Happiness, SPI, Greensboro CVB, Double Fish and USA Table Tennis

Players and spectators alike will enjoy a jam-packed weekend of table tennis at the iSET College Table Tennis Championships. The event starts Friday April 12th and continues through Sunday April 14th.

The Lone Rangers are back!

So you know the drill!

We’ll tell ya about them,

To hype them up still.

 

The story is this:

They play just in singles

Sometimes with no teammates

So they’ll have to mingle!

 

First is Yurong Ren,

Grad student at Pitt,

She’s played tt 16 years,

(A lot of time to commit!)

 

She’s overjoyed about playing

And she has many objectives:

Not be nervous, no regrets,

Perform well, make friends in this pong collective.

 

Next we have Mark Hendricks

Third year undergrad from Akron,

He started pong his freshman year,

In quick time turned his game on.

 

His goal for this champs is

“To try to win 1 game”

Also learn from higher opponents,

Improving’s a worthy claim.

 

Deepa Bhujbal’s a new freshman,

Uni of Toledo athlete

No stranger to pong,

In India she did compete.

 

Her goal’s to be adaptable

In this national tourney,

And also to enjoy this ultimate

Table tennis journey.

 

Zhe Feng studies in Colorado,

Fourth year PhD scholar

He excitedly watched the wild card results,

And knew he’d receive playing honor.

 

Before he’s coached a nationals player,

This time is his time to play,

He has one teammate coming,

Zhe’s goal’s to fight and have fun all day.

 

Congratulations to you lone rangers,

Make your teams and schools quite proud,

Make the most of this experience,

Fight for each point, “cho” out loud!

Volunteers Boost College Table Tennis Championships

By Andy Kanengiser

NCTTA Media Chair

Volunteers from across the USA and Canada are a driving force helping make the NCTTA’s championships a success from one year to the next

That’s been the case when the collegiate table tennis tournaments were played in Illinois, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Texas in recent years. And dozens of dedicated volunteers should shine again when they perform a variety of tasks at the 2019 championships. The games are set for Greensboro, North Carolina April 12-14.

“Volunteers are the meat and potatoes of the NCTTA family all season, but that’s especially true when the national championship games arrive,’’ said NCTTA President Willy Leparulo.

Whether they operate video cameras to live stream the marathon of games, umpire key matches, manage practice areas or work registration tables, volunteers tackle many tasks. “They arrive early and stay late,’’ Leparulo said. “And usually, the do so with smiles on their faces. We can’t say enough nice things about our volunteers. Each day, they are valuable from start to finish.’’

With the championships attracting nearly 300 of the best collegiate table tennis players in North America, volunteers pitch in to make the event run smoothly. The work stretches from setting up tables and flooring prior to the event to shuttling players from the region’s airports. Each year, about 75 volunteers lend a hand at the NCTTA’s biggest tournament of the year.

Some NCTTA volunteers like David Pech are veterans. Others like Logan Zimmerman are relative newcomers to the organization overseeing more than 150 college table tennis teams.

Active in NCTTA circles for four years, Pech grew up in Cleveland, Ohio. Married to Lia, who’s a native of Panama, Pech, 56, has worked as an international table tennis umpire. He played the sport for fun in college. But his two sons are pretty good at the Olympic sport with ratings in the 2300 to 2400 vicinity.

He brings interesting skills to the table. “I have been a photographer most of my life,’’ David Pech says. But his career path suddenly changed gears. “I am now a coffee farmer in Panama. For the last four months, I have been pulling in this year’s harvest.’’

The NCTTA’s leader for more than a decade, Leparulo appreciates this year’s bumper crop of  volunteers.  A Florida State University staff member and a coach of the Noles table tennis team, Leparulo first got to know David as a player when he visited the FSU club over ten years ago.

Leparulo speaks highly of Pech as a hard working umpire who volunteers at NCTTA tournaments. “He and his family are great people for our sport. David is a strong advocate for our sport.’’

Florida’s Logan Zimmerman also stepped up his game for the NCTTA. Since the summer, he’s served on the coaching committee assisting in the development of the NCTTA’s coaching certification program. Logan will work as a volunteer four days at the 2019 Nationals.

Year-round, Zimmerman works closely with Leparulo to coach the FSU Seminoles table tennis team. That started when he began helping at practices on the Tallahassee campus.

Zimmerman and Leparulo recently joined forces to launch a new table tennis club in Florida’s capital city. Their venture received nice coverage in the media, including the “Tallahassee Democrat.’’ Logan serves as head coach of this new club. 

Growing up in San Diego, California, Logan loved other sports, like golf. He received golfing certifications through the Titleist Performance Institute and picked up an MBA in professional golf management.

Fast forward to the time his brother-in-law whipped him in table tennis matches. After that stinging setback, Logan, then living in North Carolina, began training with talented players at table tennis clubs in Raleigh. His brother-in-law got slammed the next time they played. Improving his game upon returning to San Diego, he later moved to Tallahassee to work as a state employee. His passion for table tennis got stronger in the Sunshine State.

Willy Leparulo is thrilled he moved to the Florida Panhandle and shares his passion for this amazing international sport. “Logan is a Renaissance man,’’ Leparulo said. “I am really excited he’s bringing his logistics experience to the NCTTA championships.’’

College Teams Embrace First Trip to Table Tennis National Championships

By Andy Kanengiser

NCTTA Media Chair

Table tennis players at schools from California to the Midwest and deep in the heart of Texas are thrilled about advancing to the national collegiate championships.

That’s especially true for teams making their first-ever appearance at the NCTTA’s biggest tournament of the year. This time, the annual event will be staged in Greensboro, North Carolina from April 12-14.

Case in point is the University of California at Irvine. The UCI players from Southern California are talented and definitely for real as they prepare for their first trip to Nationals.  Known as the Anteaters, they proved they could play by winning the NCTTA West Regionals on March 9. UCI knocked off foes like UC Davis and Cal- Berkeley to make it to the top and punch their ticket to the 2019 Nationals.

Coach Jason Chauv is elated and so is the rest of his awesome squad at his West Coast university that enrolls nearly 30,000 undergraduates.

“Our athletes are extremely excited with the opportunity to compete on the national stage and represent UC Irvine,’’ Chauv said. “Our primary goal this coming Nationals is to have fun, meet up with old friends, and hopefully make new ones. We hope to play some good table tennis.’’

The season began for UCI with no big expectations, but just grow as a team, the coach noted. Things began to change in a hurry. UCI grabbed first-place honors in the SoCal East Fall Divisionals.

But the team didn’t rest with that one great accomplishment. UCI fared well at the next divisionals in February, including a nail biter when they defeated UC San Diego in a match going to doubles.

Topping UC Davis and Cal-Berkeley at West Regionals for UCI (in only its second appearance) was a “milestone achievement,’’ Coach Chauv said.

So who’s on the University of California-Irvine team?

The diverse squad includes three California players: Newman Cheng, 19, of Huntington Beach, Krish Avvari, 19,  and Ray Yi, 20, both of Fremont.

Making their team of standouts even more diverse are players like Hoiman Chu, 20, of Hong Kong, China, Neal Thakker, 18, of India, and Yoshitomo Matsubara, 27, of Japan.

Newman Cheng and Krish Avvari  both competed on the USA National Table Tennis Team.  Neal Thakker won the high school table tennis championship for three straight years.

If basketball success is any indication, UCI should make noise in North Carolina. The UCI hoops team advanced to the NCAA’s Big Dance and defeated Kansas State 70-64 in the tournament opener before losing to Oregon.

Also expected to make some noise in Greensboro after earning their first Nationals invite are members of the University of Illinois at Chicago team.

UIC is proud of its progress in 2018-19 in NCTTA divisionals and regionals tournaments. Players like Ali Fakhari are pumped to soon be flying to North Carolina to showcase their skills.

Traveling from the Windy City with paddles in hand to compete against the best collegiate players in North America will offer new challenges.The UIC squad also includes players like Pramod Anantha of India, Xing Li of China, Hamza Godil of Pakistan and Khang Nguyen of Vietnam.

Players like Xing Li say it’s a great honor to be invited to Nationals, especially for the first time. He points to a dedicated bunch of teammates who play their favorite Olympic sport with passion. It’s been a rewarding season of “hard work and sweat’’ for the UIC players, Li says.

The players from the Illinois metropolis are anxious to bring their best brand of table tennis down South.  “I’m so excited and proud of these guys,’’ said Ali Fakhari, the UIC team’s leader. “They’ve worked really hard to reach this huge achievement, especially while all being extremely busy students. I feel fortunate I even know these guys.’’

Equally excited about going to Nationals for their initial visit is the University of Texas at San Antonio squad. Players Leijie Qi of China, Mark Conrad, who was raised in Australia, Nicolas Alvarez of Cali, Colombia, and Deven De Leon of San Antonio, are fired up about going to Greensboro. Contributing to their success in the Lone Star State was their fever for table tennis plus the steady grind at practices.
