About North American Table Tennis

Founded in 1998, North American Table Tennis (NATT) is the only table tennis-focused event planning company in the United States. Initially, the company operated a handful of professional tournaments, which eventually came to be known as the North American Tour and the North American Teams Championships. However, for more than 10 years, NATT has also partnered with USA Table Tennis, the national governing body for table tennis in the US, to manage the rating system as well as operate the US Open and US National Championships.

In recent years, NATT has spread its wings to include corporate and charity table tennis events as well. Having established excellent working relationships with its clients, NATT has many repeat customers and is often approached with new business proposals as a result of word of mouth advertising. Much of NATT’s success can be attributed to its dedicated core management team, the majority of which comes from the sport of table tennis and understand the complexities of working in this specialized market.
