Table tennis on preliminary list of sports at the third edition of the European Games
On 12 September, the EOC welcomed a delegation from Poland to the Italian National Olympic Committee (CONI) headquarters in Rome for discussions on the third edition of the European Games (EG), which are scheduled to take place in Kraków-Małopolska in summer 2023.
The two sides agreed on a preliminary list of 23 sports for the Games, subject to final negotiations with each of the European and international sports federations. A key criterion for selection was whether the sports will use the European Games as their continental championships and/or offer qualification for the Olympic Games Paris 2024.
The sports included in the preliminary list are: archery, artistic swimming, badminton, basketball 3×3, beach handball, breaking, canoe (slalom, sprint), cycling (mountain bike, road), fencing, gymnastics, judo, karate, modern pentathlon, mountain running, rugby sevens, shooting, ski jumping (summer), sport climbing, table tennis, triathlon, volleyball (beach and court), weightlifting and wrestling.
