i heard about 25 tables although the badminton is not fully set up yet so it might be less once that happens.  The tables are closer together, playing far from the table is no longer possible so this would favor players that play close to the table (although these players will lose the experience of players against players who play far from the table).

There is no Cary Cup2020 or Triangle Club listed under the tournament schedule on the USATT site.
*sigh*

Annual Cary Cup is a big event, as Charlie Brown found out that it is not even listed at this moment.
Then this site is not working:  www.triangletabletennis.com
  
Something is going on with the Triangle TT Club.

All speculations ofc:

They probably changed their hosting plan. I suppose they plan to incorporate the fact that the facility does something else in addition to table tennis. The domain name might go all together or just point to a tab on the new website where TT will just be another activity. 

Or tt is "Dead in the triangle", soon in a theater in your neighborhood.

The club's life is in the hands of the badminton market now. They just finished renovations / setup for the 9 badminton courts last week and held the first open free day this last Saturday to promote badminton. The amount of people that showed up was amazing, however there are two other full time badminton clubs in the area already. The chinese investor that is taking over the badminton part of the club is historically successful, we shall see!

There are around 23 TT tables available, and more can be put up in the badminton area if the courts aren't in use.

I heard the other badminton clubs have huge wait lists so I'd imagine they should be able to fill 9 courts.

But since there are less table tennis tables a tournament like cary cup will probably have to be smaller.

TTT is hosting "2020 Joola Feb Giant RR" on Feb 1, only 4 players entered. (a 2-star tourney.)
https://omnipong.com/T-tourney.asp?t=100&r=1587

While Cape Fear, Feb 15, no star - has 6 players entered.

TTT sure looks pretty bad.

And three of them work there.  I hope we find out more about TTT shortly.

TTT did have a December RR event and it was fairly attended.  Would like to know more about Cary Cup, but don't believe we will have one this year.

I am playing cape fear, should be fun.

Many years ago my TT club started to share space with a fencing club.  It did not end well for TT.

Let me guess, during first confrontation you quickly discovered that your paddles are not very good at blocking their attacks? Tongue

Fortunately we were not cut to pieces, but the fencing club was so successful they eventually bought the building and kicked us out.

I mean which kid wouldn't trade a paddle for a sword LOL.  Jokes aside, from what I know, Badminton clubs usually garner much more people, and are usually more successful.  A lot more females also play, so that adds to the membership numbers.

Am I the only one who thinks 23 is too much? In a sense that you probably don't have enough players to justify that many tables. Heck, Westchester TTC has 19. OK, ICC has 30 (per their website, never visited), but that's a much more established and active club.

All the tables were in use Sunday afternoon.  And when there's a tournament you need a lot.  I don't think you can have too many tables.

Glad to hear they have enough traffic - and yes, you can have too many tables, if you are paying for space that is not being utilized. Hope it's not the problem for them.

========================
2020 Joola Feb Giant RR:  Remains at 4 payers entered.  (2-star)
But Cape Fear tourney (2 weeks later):  Now has increased to 8 players.  (0-star)

Still no info about 2020 Cary Cup.
-----------------------------------------
Already announced (and scheduled) tournaments in North Carolina, so far:
No Cary Cup in it.

If you look at how they setup the tournament. Only prizes for top 4 players, $65 entry will turn off alot of lower players. Also, its U2600 which is blatantly excluding Jishan in regards to the whole anti coaching drama that went down in November. 

Its a bit obvious to most they are trying to get their coaches some $ (the ones someone mentioned are the only ones signed up)

TBTT just posted ANOTHER U2600 GRR in March. I wish Jishan would toss rating points just to join. Would be funny to see what TBTT would do then to keep him out.

Can a tournament make money with only 7 players?
The owner of TTT is one of the participants, so only 6 other players entered.

After giving out prize money, the owner can not make much money. (with so few players.)

Cary Cup is a money maker, lots of players - but no Cary Cup this year.
