World Veteran Chamionships: Winners

Courtesy of ButterflyMag

May 30, 2016 – One of the biggest events in the history of table tennis has come to an end.

During the last seven days in Alicante, Spain, there was a lot of competition but the main thing was that people of different age and different nationality came together to celebrate the tournament and our sport.

Meet new people, make new friends, catch up with old friends, play and watch table tennis, sunbathing at the beach – during and at the end of the World Veteran Chamionships in Alicante there were really only winners.

Some of them became not only winners but World Champions – and here they are.

Respect and congratulations to …
