    International table tennis comes to the North East

     

    The English Table Tennis Association is pleased to announce that the final home Joola European Championships Qualification match will take place in Gateshead between England and Spain’s women.
     

    Just two fixtures remain in the qualification campaigns for the 2013 European Championships in Schwechat, Austria with the England versus Spain match the last on home soil. 

    The match, which takes place on Tuesday 29th January, will see England’s women attempt to win their first duel in the Championship Division of the European Championships after three previous defeats. 

    After promotion in 2011, the girls need to avoid defeat at the Gateshead Leisure Centre to ensure they remain in the top tier of European competition for the main event next October. 

    Gateshead Council cabinet member for culture, Cllr Linda Green, said: “This is another fantastic opportunity for people from across the region to see world class sport showcased on their doorstep. We’re delighted to welcome international table tennis to Gateshead Leisure Centre and hope that it inspires people of all ages to come and give table tennis a go at one of the ‘Come N Try’ free sessions here at the centre or use one of the many free tables we’ve set up across Gateshead.” 

    Tickets are available for the match from just £1 at either gateshead.gov.uk/whatson or over the phone on 0191 433 6965 with superior tickets available for the first time which will include extra benefits including superior seating and a meal with the players. These tickets can be purchased from the ETTA directly by calling Vanda Jones on 01424 456210

    Both England’s women and men will also face a final fixture against the Czech Republic in 2013 which could yet determine both side’s final qualifying positions. 

    The ETTA thanks Gateshead Council for providing their support to run this important match.
