World Championship of Ping Pong

The game that fell out of favour with the advent of super-spin inducing rubber bats years ago is now making its way back to the mainstream.

This is thanks to a potent mixture of speed, power and old-fashioned skill courtesy of the technology-free sandpaper bats.

Following its exciting first four runnings at the iconic Alexandra Palace, the next World Championship of Ping Pong takes place in January 2020.
