Immediately following the Pan Am (U11 & U13) championships, there is a WTT Youth Contender tournament in the same place (Mosquera, Colombia) on 17-20 October 2023.

If you intend to enter the Pan Am Championships U11 and U13, then it may be a good idea using the same air ticket to also enter the WTT Youth Contender. The events offered for U11 and U13 are singles only.

Players who wish to participate can do so, through TTCAN, but at their own cost (self-funded). This means that each player (parents) must assume the cost of air-travel, meals, and accommodation.

CONDITION: Player’s must be accompanied by an adult (parent or coach).

All other conditions remain the same as for the Pan American Championships:

TTCAN will do the following, then invoice each participant for the related costs:

  • Enter the players in the event
  • Pay the organising committee for the accommodation/meals package for each player, then invoice the player accordingly
  • Provide playing shirts if sizes are available ($30 per shirt)
  • Pay for the entry fees directly (will not be charged to the player)
  • Based on the entries received, TTCAN will form the teams and doubles (with parents’ input)

 The parent of the player must do the following:

 Confirm participation to TTCAN 5 days before the deadline not later than 4 September 2023

  • Provide travel details not later than 15 September 2023 (flight numbers, arrival, and departure)
  • Accept the financial conditions
  • Accept full responsibility for the participation of the player
  • Pay the TTCAN invoice upon receipt before the organizer’s entry deadline of 9 September
  • Indicate if additional hotel rooms are needed (parents? personal coach?)
  • Ensure that the player has a playing shirt with their name printed on the back

 We need your confirmation of entry by 4 September 2023 (same time as Pan Am), as it takes a few days to register the players and to make payment to the Organizing Committee.

 All participants must be registered with the ITTF and must be Canadian citizens. Please provide a copy of player’s passport (by e-mail attachment) when you confirm your entry.

 Following are the age categories (singles only):

 U11: Born in 2012 or later

U13: Born in 2010 or later

 Please send the above information as soon as possible but not later than 4 September 2023 to: and
