With a sea of star players and several thousands of visitors expected to gather in the Hungarian capital, it's all set to be an incredible party atmosphere in Budapest. As for the venue, the Hungexpo Budapest Fair Center sits right at the heart of one of Europe's most beautiful cities, meaning spectators will be in for a fantastic week of sport and culture. The fan zone will keep visitors entertained with a series of tables where they can try out their Table Tennis skills as well as shop various sports equipment, clothing and memorabilia.
This is a landmark moment for Budapest – a city steeped in sporting tradition. The Hungarian capital held the World Table Tennis Championships three times back in 1929, 1931 and 1950. Now, almost 70 years later, the big event is back in Budapest again.
"We are delighted to be the hosts of such an important sporting event and, since many people enjoy Table Tennis in Hungary, we hope to have a full house," said Gabor Ganczer, CEO of Hungexpo.
These will be the 55th World Table Tennis Championships and the biggest yet, as star athletes compete for the globe's biggest individual prizes, in contrast to last year's team event in Halmstad, Sweden, where players represented their countries.
"It is worth noting that Table Tennis is the sixth biggest of all world championships. Obviously, lots of fans will arrive from around Europe, but we plan to sell lots of tickets in Asia too," added Gábor Felegyi, Secretary General of the Hungarian Table Tennis Federation.
