At the urging of my friend, coach Aniruddha Damle we formed a youth league in February 2020 so my students and his students could play more table tennis and improve their skills through additional practice time.  We found that 1 hour long training sessions once a week were not enough and after a few months of practicing children lost interest.

The league meets on Sundays during regular ‘Table tennis open gym’ sessions from 8:30 – 11:00 am at the Eola Community Center in Aurora.  The cost for each session is $4.  There is no cost to participate in the league.

We run the league using USATT’s software which is hosted on the simplycompete.com website.  Here are the current league players and their league ratings.  You will need to create a login i.e. username and password to access this information.  Once you login, click ‘Search Leagues’, select by City and enter ‘Aurora’. Click on league named ‘Fox Valley Youth League’ and a list of players will appear.  These ratings are separate from USATT tournament ratings.
