NCTTA Tournaments Use Double Fish Balls

by Andy Kanengiser
NCTTA Media Committee Chairman

Double Fish table tennis balls will be in play at NCTTA tournaments over the next three years.

A new agreement announced in September will partner the NCTTA with Double Fish for divisional, regional and national championships through 2017.

"We are excited to be partnering with Double Fish in league competition all the way to our national championships,'' says NCTTA President Willy Leparulo.

The TMS 2015 College Table Tennis Championships are booked for Eau Claire, Wisconsin April 10-12. The event will bring about 300 of North America's best collegiate table tennis players to the Dairy State for three thrilling days of competition with Double Fish balls flying at rapid speeds.

Double Fish produces 40 mm three-star table tennis balls that are long lasting, and quite durable. Players often use Double Fish balls for months on end in training sessions without breaking.

Thanks to the new agreement, Double Fish balls "are the official ball sponsor'' for NCTTA tournaments, Leparulo said. NCTTA matches will begin using the balls with the start of Fall 2014 semester action beginning in October.

How many Double Fish balls will be needed for NCTTA divisional, regional and championship games?

It's hard to pinpoint an exact number. But NCTTA officials say they expect to use thousands and thousands of balls.

Double Fish balls are approved by the ITTF and have been used in the Olympics and the World Table Tennis Championships.
