For the second time in three years, the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire will be the location of the Collegiate Table Tennis National Championships in April 2017.
UW-Eau Claire's McPhee Physical Education Center will be the site of the event, set for April 6-9.
The Visit Eau Claire Sports Commission and the UW-Eau Claire Table Tennis Club worked together to bid against other destinations around the U.S. to hold the championships at UW-Eau Claire.
Participants in the event are expected to book more than 300 local hotel rooms and have an overall economic impact of $80,000 on the Eau Claire area.
