The Little Rock Table Tennis club is hosting one of the 2019 USA Hopes national training camp and qualifying tournaments on Friday-Sunday, February 22-24, 2019 at the Jim Dailey Fitness & Aquatic Center in Little Rock, Arkansas.  These training camps take place at various clubs across the country, and one is coming to Little Rock.  LRTTC is partnering with the newly established Arkansas Table Tennis Academy as a sponsor to bring a challenging and fun event to the state of Arkansas for the first time in table tennis history.

The 2019 USATT Hopes Program is a series of regional, national and international camps and competitions designed to spark motivation and interest for skilled and talented young table tennis athletes who have a love for table tennis and who wish to become high-level players. Participants will receive expert coaching and training from USATT National Coaches for three days in a fun, rewarding environment in which they will have an opportunity to meet peers and share experiences.  Two USATT National coaches, Mike Lauro (2018 USATT Volunteer Coach of the Year) and Russ Hamilton, both of whom live and coach in Arkansas, will assist USATT High Performance Director Joerg Bitzigeio who will be leading the training camp.  

The training camp is open to junior players born after January 1, 2007, however players up to age 15 may be accepted provided there is space available.  There is a limit of 24 entries.  Only players born after January 1, 2007 are eligible to qualify in the tournament for the next stage - the USATT Hopes Week and Challenge to be held in April 2019.  Older players would play in an extra event at the tournament.  Participation in the tournament on Sunday requires participation in the two days of the camp on Friday and Saturday. 

Guests and Spectators are Welcome!

Hotel accommodations:

For a hotel that is very close to the venue, we recommend the Four Points by Sheraton in Midtown. It is less than 2 miles from the venue. Coach Mike Lauro lives near this hotel.

For a hotel that is within walking distance to a number of attractions in Little Rock, then any hotel in the River Market District would be good choice. In the River Market you will be surrounded by shops, restaurants, museum, Clinton Library, parks, streetcar, etc. It's still just a short 10 minute drive to the venue from there. Of course you can also stay further away (10-20 minutes) in West Little Rock, but you mostly have to drive to other places as it is very spread out and not too good for walking.

The River Market is a family-friendly safe area. If there are family members coming to the Hopes camp and they want to do some shopping or sightseeing, this area would be good.

You might look into either of the hotels below:
Hampton Inn & Suites
Residence Inn by Marriott

If you need some other recommendations, please let us know.
