Table tennis fans are in for a treat at the start of this New Year as the Singapore Table Tennis Association (STTA), together with VOXSPORTS, bring us the National Table Tennis Grand Finale from 11 to 19 January 2014.
Fans won’t miss a thing as all the action will be broadcasted on www.stta.org.sg and www.voxsports.co, with video on demand clips being uploaded within 24 to 36 hours from the end of daily play throughout the entire tournament.
Er. Dr. Lee Bee Wah, Member of Parliament for Nee Soon GRC & President, STTA, said: “We want the excitement and the highlights of our local tournaments to be carried across the world. Fanswho cannot make it to these competitions will be able to enjoy the best sporting moments online throughout the year. They can re-live the excitement of the games for as many times as they want to no matter where they are. Also by leveraging off technology to create an online presence, we to hope to further promote the sport of table tennis to the community and inspire more people to live better through sports.”
The National Table Tennis Grand Finale is the crown jewel of the local table tennis competition calendar as it is the only local tournament our national paddlers participate in. It is no surprise then that this is one of the most highly anticipated tournament, both for the spectators, as well as for the competitors.
This competition is also the perfect showcase for our local paddlers, both young and old, as evidenced by participants as young as 8 years old taking part last year.
All the participants are hyped up and raring to go as they will have a chance to spar against Singapore’s top table tennis players; namely Feng Tianwei, Pang Xuejie and Isabelle Li at the National Table Tennis Grand Finale.
