2019 European Under 21 Championships in city of Gondomar
European Table Tennis Union is pleased to announce that the Table Tennis Federation of Portugal will host the third edition of the European Under 21 Championships in the city of Gondomar. The Events will start Thursday 7th and will continue until Sunday 10th March 2019.
„We are looking forward to revisit Gondomar, after the ITTF Europe Top-16 Cup being held in the same venue in 2016, the Multiusos de Gondomar Coração de Ouro. The great experience of the Portuguese Table Tennis Federation in the past five years, is certainly helpful when now organising in the same venue a bigger event. Since the 2014 TMS European Championships held in Lisbon, this very active Federation has made major progress at the level of organising events. Aware of the enthusiastic support of the city authorities, I am more than convinced that we will have great Under 21 Championships in Gondomar in 2019. It was not without reason that Gondomar was European City of Sports in 2017....” stated ETTU President Ronald KRAMER.
Portuguese TTF already enjoyed great success as event organiser and FPTM President Pedro MOURA is looking forward to another great challenge.
"The Portuguese TTF is very proud and honored to be awarded with the organisation of the 2019 European Under 21 Championships. Since 2014, Portugal has been receiving the most importants ETTU events, being this European Championships one of the few that we still did not organise. The fact that we are returning to the sportive city of Gondomar makes it even more exciting, and we hope that all participants will have great memories from the time they'll spend in Multiusos of Gondomar."
