ITTF strikes extension with flooring supplier

Chinese sports flooring supplier Tinsue has renewed its partnership with the International Table Tennis Federation.

The new four-year deal, which was brokered by TMS International, the ITTF’s marketing partner, will run from 2017 to 2020.

Under the agreement, Tinsue will provide flooring for the 2020 summer Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan, as well as the 2017 to 2020 editions of the ITTF World Tour Grand Finals.

Tinsue created the blue floor used during the London 2012 Olympics and also supplied the green surfaces used during the Rio 2016 Games.

Earlier this month, the ITTF renewed its partnership with Japanese table tennis equipment manufacturer San-Ei. The company will serve as the official table supplier for Tokyo 2020.
