Are there any tournaments in the US in july?
If yes, where and are they only for licensed players in the US?

Cheers

Given that you plan to explore Northeast - Westchester July Open is in the last weekend of July. 2-day event, so you'll get plenty of TT. 20$ for a tournament pass plus event entry fees.

Boogar,

Here's a list of USA-TT Events: http://www.teamusa.org/usa-table-tennis/events As pgpg wrote, you pay a $20 tournament fee (@ tournament) and fees per entry (each entry could cost $15-$50). Most will be held on Saturday's or Sunday (some on both). That will leave you Monday-Friday open.

The US is huge and not like going from Berlin to Hamburg. You need to tell us the city (airport) you arrive and city (airport) you depart. That would make it easier.

I am assuming you will land in New York(?) the US East Coast. Here is a sample of events you could visit:

Date - Club - City, State
July 02, 2016 - HCTT Circuit 2016 - Columbia, Maryland
http://www.teamusa.org/USA-Table-Tennis/Events/2016/July/02/HCTT-Circuit-2016

July 16 - 17, 2016 - LYTTC July Open - Dunellen, New Jersey
http://www.teamusa.org/USA-Table-Tennis/Events/2016/July/16/LYTTC-July-Open


July 24, 2016 - NYISC July 2016 Open - College Point, New York
http://www.teamusa.org/USA-Table-Tennis/Events/2016/July/24/NYISC-July-2016-Open

I chose the US East Coast as it's the densest population with TT (drivable distances)

If you have spare $$, and if you are lucky with an open slot, you could fly out to the US Nationals. Many days of TT. You will need to fly out there (6+ hour flight from NYC)

Now, there are clubs on the East Coast too that you could visit Monday-Friday.

Let us know more airport details, we could build a better itinerary.

PM me if you have further questions.

He can't play US Nationals, I think - must be US resident IIRC. Given his post on another forum, he's planning on exploring NYC/Boston/Philly area between 7/7 and 7/27.

If so - LYTTC and NYISC tournaments are best bets.

Austin Tx tournament is a round robin and in a building that would be more like a normal European "Club" setting. I have played there but its not on the East Coast. All the tournaments near the NYC area would be a good bet with all the player quality available there.
