Visit Eau Claire, in conjunction with the Eau Claire Sports Commission, is happy to welcome the 2017 TMS College Table Tennis National Championships April 7-9, 2017 at McPhee/Olson Physical Education Center on the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Campus.
The National Collegiate Table Tennis Association (NCTTA) is the governing body for college table tennis in the United State and Canada, consisting of 162 participating colleges. The National Championships are the culmination of 2016-17 NCTTA season played in the fall and spring. The top 250 college table tennis players, representing over 40 of the top college teams, have qualified through division and regional play to come to Eau Claire.
The event is the second time the NCTTA has held its national championship in Eau Claire in the last three years – also in 2015 – and is yet another example of a booked event under the strategic facilities partnership between Visit Eau Claire and UW-Eau Claire. The partnership, the first of it’s kind in the nation between a destination marketing organization and a university, allows Visit Eau Claire to market university facilities for sporting events and meetings on guaranteed dates, within a 36-month booking window. Without this agreement, this event would not have been possible.
The event has an estimated economic impact of $83,700 for the Eau Claire Area.
