ETTU launches the European Virtual Table Tennis Challenge

ETTU is pleased to announce the launch of the European Virtual Table Tennis Challenge to be organised in fall 2023 in collaboration with the French Table Tennis Federation (FFTT). This exciting new competition will be played on cutting-edge virtual reality headsets using the award winning Eleven Table Tennis game.

The inaugural edition of the event will mark a significant milestone in the evolution of table tennis and sports entertainment. The growing popularity of Eleven Table Tennis worldwide, attributed to the convenience of playing from the comfort of home and the realistic nature of the game, has inspired ETTU to adopt this digital transformation. FFTT successfully organized the inaugural French Virtual Table Tennis Championship in December 2022 and ETTU will look to their expertise to elevate the growth of this form of table tennis to new heights.

All the virtual table tennis players in Europe are expected to gather to showcase their skills and level during the event. As they compete for the title, their performances will transcend physical and geographical boundaries, creating a vibrant community of table tennis fans. Up to 1000 players will be allowed to compete in this first edition of the event.

"We are absolutely thrilled to jointly announce the European Virtual Table Tennis Challenge in partnership with the FFTT," expressed Pedro MOURA, Acting President of ETTU, alongside Gilles ERB, FFTT President. "This event represents an exciting opportunity to embrace the digital era and unite table tennis enthusiasts across Europe. We are eager to see how Table Tennis is adaptable to the new challenges of tomorrow’s world."

Award winning Eleven Table Tennis continues to grow with players worldwide as it is a jaw-droppingly realistic way to play table tennis from anywhere in the world. “Partnering with prestigious organizations like ETTU to create large scale tournaments for players has been on our roadmap and we are excited to hit this milestone,” says Roman REKHLER, CTO of For Fun Labs and creator of Eleven Table Tennis.
