World Championship of Ping Pong 2018
Ping pong is back! The game that fell out of favour with the advent of super-spin inducing rubber bats years ago is returning to the mainstream thanks to a potent mixture of speed, power and old-fashioned skill courtesy of the technology-free sandpaper bats.
Now into its sixth year at the iconic Alexandra Palace, London, the World Championship is a throwback to the early days of table tennis and is catapulting ping pong into the big league and onto the international television stage.
The action is fast and furious, with the emphasis on speed, skill and shot-making and only the very best will see it through the Sunday night’s closing stages.
