ITTF serves up extension with long-term partner

Chinese sports equipment manufacturer Double Fish has extended its partnership with the International Table Tennis Federation.

The new four-year deal, which was brokered by the ITTF’s marketing partner TMS International, will run until 2020.

Under the agreement, Double Fish will retain its title as the official table supplier of the ITTF’s World Tour Grand Finals, which will this year take place in Doha, Qatar from December 8-11. Double Fish has held the position since 2004.

ITTF president Thomas Weikert said: “For the World Tour Grand Finals, they have provided us with some very aesthetically pleasing tables, and we look forward to some more amazing designs over the next four years.”
