2016 Tournament

The 888sport World Championship of Ping Pong returns to the Alexandra Palace, London in January for what promises to be another pulsating year.

For 2016 the event expands to three days with play on the evenings of Friday, Saturday and Sunday 22nd-24th January. The event features 64 players from all over the world, headed by defending champion Andrew Baggaley of England.

Using traditional sandpaper rackets, the 888sport World Championship of Ping Pong 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.

The tournament takes place over three sessions, with a double elimination group stage featuring eight groups played out on eight tables on the Friday evening before the last 32 enter a knockout stage played across two tables on the Saturday evening, which also included the last 16.

Sunday sees the four quarter finals followed by the two semi finals and then the championship match where the destination of the winner’s cheque and magnificent trophy will be determined.

All matches will be best of three games, race to 15 points, except the semi-finals and the final which is best of five sets.
