World Championship of Ping Pong Is Back!

Matchroom Multi Sport is delighted to announce The World Championship of Ping Pong will return to Alexandra Palace, London from January 26-27, 2019, with tickets on sale from 10am on Friday, September 14 at www.worldchampionshipofpingpong.net.

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 seventh 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 – only the very best will see it through the Sunday night’s closing stages.

China’s Wang Shibo won one of the tournament’s closest ever finals to lift the 2018 title, defeating his compatriot Huang Jungang in front of a packed audience at Alexandra Palace with a five-set score of 15-11, 13-15, 14-15, 15-13, 15-14.

Tickets for the 2019 World Championship of Ping Pong will be available from 10am on Friday, September 14 priced at £17.50 per session for adults and £11 for children. Day tickets are priced £30, with concessions at £19 with season tickets priced £55 for adults and £35 for concessions.

Families can take advantage of the Family Season Ticket offer which is priced at £110 and gives admission to two adults and up to three children for all four sessions of play. Booking fees apply to all tickets.

The tournament will once again kick off with the double elimination group stage played over eight tables on Saturday afternoon (12:00-16:00). The knockout stage will commence on Saturday evening (17:30-2100) and continue on Sunday with another two sessions. The afternoon session will run from 12:00 until 15:30 before the evening session featuring the quarter-finals, semi-finals and final begins at 17:00, finishing at approximately 21:00.
