European Champions League Women
The European Champions League Women (ECLW) organised by the European Table Tennis Union (ETTU), is the most important international club competition which replaced European Club Cup of Champions (ECCC), the previous prominent club competition, since the 1998/99 season.
Hungarian club Statisztika Budapest still holds remarkable record, by winning the title 25 times, from 1969/70 to 2000/01 season. They were on the top 11 consecutive seasons (1976-86). Romanian Vointa Arad was the winner of the inaugural 1963/64 season.
The competition came into a new era in 2005/06, when the European Champions League Women started.
Seven clubs in total – Heerlen (Netherlands), Castelgoffredo (Italy), Linz AG Froschberg (Austria), Berlin Eastside (Germany), Fenerbahce Istanbul (Turkey), Dr. Časl (Croatia) and KTS Enea Siarka Tarnobrzeg (Poland) – have clinched the title so far. Berlin is unique team with four crowns (2011/12, 2013/14, 2015/16, 2016/17).
Berlin continued its dominancy in the 2016/17 season, having 9-1 score.
In the 2017/18 Dr. Časl goes down in history as first ever Croatian club with the title of Seamaster ECLW, as they beat 2016/17 ETTU Cup winner Bursa Buyuksehir Belediyespor twice, 3:2 away, 3:0 home.
In 2019/20 KTS Enea Siarka Tarnobrzeg won its very first ECLW title, as it overcame Dr. Časl in the 2018/19 ECLW final (6:4 on aggregate). Poland's club beat them twice 3:2.
Due to COVID 19 Pandemic the 2019/20 season was halted at the semi final stage. Four clubs reached that phase: Poland’s KTS Enea Siarka Tarnobrzeg, Germany’s TTC Berlin Eastside, French TT Saint Quentinois and Austria’s Linz AG Froschberg.
