The World Championship of Ping Pong returns to Alexandra Palace, London, this weekend -January 27th & 28th.

The game that fell out of favour with the advent of super-spin inducing rubber bats years ago is returning to the mainstream thanks to a potent mixture of speed, power and old-fashioned skill courtesy of the technology-free sandpaper bats.

Now into its sixth year at the iconic Alexandra Palace, London, the World Championship is a throwback to the early days of table tennis and is catapulting ping pong into the big league and onto the international television

Gavin will play live on Sky Sports from 12noon this Saturday as he aims to progress to the Sunday evening ‘Grand Finale’ where the Top 8 players will battle it out for Ping Pongs biggest prize!

Good luck Rumdog Rumgay!
