World Championship of Ping Pong: Irish Qualifier

The now famous World Championship Of Ping Pong will return to our television screens early in 2016 as Matchroom Sports and the Alexandra Palace will stage another edition of the ever popular event in London.

With Barry Hearns idea to go back to the old style ‘ping pong’, removing all equipment that we see in modern day table tennis, it is very much man on man in this gruelling, hugely entertaining format.

Once again, there will be Irish representation at the event. Over the last 2 years, Paul McCreery (Pictured) has reached the KO Stages in London while Colum Slevin did the same in 2014. Gavin Maguire and John Murphy have also qualified in the past.This year, Ormeau TTC will play host to the Irish Qualifier on Sunday January 3rd. Again, two places will be up for grabs!

The event will be staged all day at the New Ormeau Table Tennis Club venue at 113 The Mount, Belfast. We hope to have 64 players on the day with some special guest appearances from Ulster Rugbys Andrew Trimble & Craig Gilroy !!

More information coming soon!!!
