How to qualify for the US Olympic table tennis team

How to qualify for the US Olympic table tennis team.

  1. Become the best singles table tennis player in the country, preferably by a significant margin
  2. Enter the qualifiers
  3. Win the qualifiers

This is far more straightforward than I would have expected. Obviously step 1 presents a significant challenge, and step 2 probably involves some paperwork. Still, it came as a shock to me that a single tournament, open to any USATT player as far as I can tell, which only gets 50 entrants, is all that stands between an aspirational table tennis player and such a significant event as the Olympics.

On to step 1!
