Join our growing list of sponsors every year as above & help professionalize

& grow the world’s most popular & fastest sport in low country, South Carolina & USA  

Sponsors providing players to compete in the tournament even better & preferred.

We want you to also have fun while also promoting the growth of a popular sport in SC

This is HTTTC’s annual flagship event & had become an event that had revived State Championships in other US states to prmote this world’s most popular sport played with cutting edge high technogy rackets (with 222 of 226 member nations of International Olympic Committee also in ITTF) as well as one of (if not the the fastest) athletic & tactically most complex sport on feet (a far cry from most Americans can visualize as your silly mindless basement game of ping-pong played with 99 cent (ITTF illegal) paddles…… since USA is probably only or one of very few nations where table-tennis is not a formal varsity sport in secondary schools) .     Our prize money has also increased every year we ran it in the past & now badly need you help to do even better but we do not accept just donations. HTTTC only seeks (playing sponsors) or (advertising & playing sponsors) who will play in one or more of 16 various events by paying entry fees (100% of entry fees & advertising proceeds goes towards prize money pot while food / drinks, ball, supplies, loaner rackets etc are courtesy of great thoughtful HTTTC members) .    You can contribute to the prize fund by being an advertising sponsor. We will provide you a free webpage for one year if you do not have one already & also provide a link on HTTTC home page & here on this tournament webpage.  Please email us as  ttHanahan@hotmail.com for more details or you can just send your donations towards prize fund using PayPal to this email address. It is a shame that the world’s most popular & fastest & most tactically complex sport has to go around begging for a few $100 but this is at least slowly changing in USA. We can always fantasize about one kwoledgeable  TT fan changing the course of TT History with a big donation for prize fund but anything is possible given that table-tennis is probablly only (or one of few) sport that may have changed the course of history with the “ping pong diplomacy” of 1971 between China and the USA & the West. Of course playing sponsors is better than just donors except in the case of large corporate sponsors but that may be few yers away yet.     You can also see our detailed prize money distribution chart for 2015 event at 2015 results page .

Tournament Ball :-   Official Tournament Ball will be the 3 Star white plastic ball if one of the 2 players wants to use it in a specific match. However, since the celluloid ball is also still perfectly ITTF legal for ALL tournament play, the recommended tournament ball  will be the 3 Star DHS Yellow ball if both players agree to use it in a specific match or they can use any other 3 star (ONLY) white or yellow ball (either plastic or celluloid) of their choice in a specific match.

Sandpaper rackets are not allowed. However hardbat rackets (pips with no sponge) are allowed in all events except as item 1 below

All USATT / ITTF rules apply except :-

1. Only smooth (inverted) spinny rubber rackets are allowed in (schools / collegiate) events 18,30,118 & 133 . No rackets with pips of any type allowed

2. In the context of brutally oppressive and reprehensible rules by ITTF (Harrison, Sharara, Scholer, Hodges etc) against defensive / tactical playing styles that followed after 1983, The two color rule of 1983 will not be enforced. Players can use rackets with any & same color rubbers (Otherwise legal on current ITTF LARC) both sides.

3. Scholer-Hodges Aspect Ratio Regulation (Durban, South Africa, 1998) will not be enforced. Players can use 1.3 Aspect Ratio rubbers from prior to 1998 such as Butterfly Feint Long Classic (used by nearly every top defender till 1998 but banned by this childish ill-conceived brutally oppressive rule) or Juic Leggy Classic or TSP Curl P1 Classic etc or new rubbers with Aspect Ratio around 2                                          2015 Results Page

4. Players are required to submit their rackets only to officials (if asked) but NOT to opponents even if opponents DEMAND it.              2014 Results Page

USATT / ITTF rule inclusion confirmation

Scholer-NOT-Hodges Frictionless-Pips-Ban of 2008 will be strictly enforced. :- Any pips rubbers that randomizes ball flight paths by deliberate product design ( known now as anti-children-Hodges-trickery pips ) will not be allowed to be used.  This confirmation is included by HTTTC due to the sad  recent developments in which USATT Vice President  Rev.Larry Hodges pledged on August 26,2015 (in a  political move similar to his strong support of (illegal) speed-gluing) to have the Frictionless-Pips-Ban 2008  regulation repealed by the ITTF to the great detriment of grass-roots (juniors / children) development. This is why this regulation going forward will be known as the  anti-children-Hodges-trickery pips regulation.  Strangely & oddly, Rev.Hodges (& USATT (High Performance $#? LOL) Committee Chairman Carl Danner) used to claim that they opposed the Aspect Ratio Regulation for the supposed very reason, that Aspect Ratio 1998 Regulation helped grass-roots growth (while it really does not in any shape or form) but though as admitted by Rev.Hodges, the Aspect Ratio Regulation 1998 only greatly effected the world’s best & all other defensive players very negatively. But now in a 180 degree turnabout, Rev.Hodges wants to repeal NOT the Aspect Ratio 1998 regulation but in a bizarre political move, wants to repeal the Frictionless Pips Ban of 2008. Any such repeal of Frictionless Pips Ban would only be detrimental grass-roots development due to the extremely crazy behavior of these pips 10000 times much worse (if you extrapolate the same perverted logic used by Rev.Hodges & Carl Danner , that Aspect Ratio Regulation 1998 helped grass-roots development). Also keep in mind that, regardless of all above self-contradicting & confusing counter-claims by USATT politicians, HTTTC has put money where their mouth is by  taking real action to protect grass-roots development by only allowing smooth spinny rubbers not only  in schools (age under 18)  events but also in the transitional college (age under 30) events as well)

You need not have to be a USATT member (or another ITTF affiliate member) or have ANY rating. If you have a USATT league rating that will be used. If you only have a USATT tournament rating it will be used but it will not change. If you have both league & tournament rating, higher of the two will be used. All players thus will have new or processed USATT league rating based on tournament singles results. Your doubles performance does not effect any ratings anywhere. There is NO $7 USATT rating fee or $49 per year USATT membership fee.. Your previous USATT tournament rating even if used is not effected or changed in any way. Only your USATT league rating will change or you will get a new USATT league rating if you do not have one.      2014 Results Page

Official USATT Rating Point Exchange Chart

The Rating exchange chart below is used to calculate your final USATT League Ratings.

The USATT League & Tournament rating processing is somewhat similar but not 100% identical . The USATT computer calculates your new ratings....... not HTTTC.

Keep in mind ratings are not based on head to head Results between 2 players only,

but based on results from among a group of players. What infuriates many is when they see a player X who has never ever beaten them rated higher. This happens because they overlook the simple fact that the player X may beat players Y & Z you ALWAYS lose to as well.
