Dear Table Tennis Friends:
Imagine a future where families see table tennis as a sport that’s more than recreation, where table tennis is a sport of
choice in college, and where the stars and stripes fly above the medal podium at the Olympic Games. This is the vision
of the new USA Table Tennis. This vision can be a reality with your help.
We have focused our High Performance Plan on the future. Training, coaching and camps add to the hard work our
young athletes are putting in every day. Every opportunity to compete and train against international competitors
strengthens our team and challenges them to grow and improve. This hard work deserves the support of a strong table
tennis community.
Today we’re asking for your help to make USA Table Tennis stronger with a gift to our annual giving campaign. Your
gift will be matched by the US Olympic Committee’s Challenge Grant Program, Dollar for Dollar up to $50,000!
As you may know, American athletes are making a mark internationally. Currently three female cadets are ranked in the
top 40 of the world and two female juniors are ranked in the top 25 in the world. The United States recently won medals
at both the French Jr. Open and Canadian Jr. Open. In addition, our Para athletes have recently won medals in the recent
Costa Rica and U.S. Para Open events.
USA Table Tennis publishes USA Table Tennis magazine, conducts major championships, selects and supports the
National and Paralympic teams, promotes the sport and runs a youth development program, which consists of training,
coaching, camps and teams. All of these services are paid for with dues, tournament income and a small annual
contribution from the United States Olympic Committee.
Simply said, we could do more if we had more. That’s why we are asking for your help. We need support that will be
dedicated to developing the future of our sport. The annual giving campaign is dedicated to youth programs and sport
promotion; the two things that will make the vision a reality.
Each of our projects will help young players improve, put more US athletes on the international scene and help us reach
more recreational players to build support for the sport. Please make a gift of $50 or more today to help us reach our
goals. You can help us reach these goals faster with a contribution of $250, $500 or even $1000. Gifts to USA Table
Tennis, a 501(C)3 organization, are tax deductible.
Please take action today by completing the attached form and enclosing your gift to USA Table Tennis. (or go online to to make a gift instantly). Your gift will help build the future of table tennis in the USA. Thank you for
your loyalty and generosity.
