About the Event
RACVB, Rockford Area Venues and Entertainment Authority (RAVE) and the International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) North America announced the first-ever Olympic trials that were held in Rockford. The 2019 North American Olympic Table Tennis Trials took place on Saturday, October 5, 2019 at the BMO Harris Bank Center in downtown Rockford.
The ITTF brought the men's and women's teams to represent both Team USA and Team Canada. Teams consisted of three players (one reserve per team) and played the best three of five matches. Team USA edged out Team Canada is both the men's and women's sessions and will advance to the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo. This marked the first time since 2012 (Cary, NC) that the North American Table Tennis Trials have been held in the U.S. The 2016 Trials were produced outside of Toronto in Markham, Ontario, Canada.
With this historic Rockford sports event, ITTF North America is offered expansive local partnership opportunities. In addition, RACVB announced a full slate of community awareness programs and events that lead up to October 5.
