    Nothing catches the attention like the tradition duels between arch rivals.

    Contests
    such as golf’s Ryder Cup, which sees the Europeans face the Americans,
    the Ashes cricket Test Matches as England plays Australia or the Old
    Firm football match in Scotland, when the city of Glasgow forms into
    two distinctive camps to support either Celtic or Rangers.

    They are special events, events which go beyond the disciplines of their sport and beyond the disciplines of sport.

    Most Noticeable
    In
    table tennis there are traditional rivals, many national leagues will
    have such situations but on a global scale such confrontations are less
    pronounced but surely are to be encouraged.

    The most noticeable
    I have witnessed being in the Men’s Team final of the table tennis
    events at the Pan American Games in Rio de Janeiro in 2008, when Brazil
    played Argentina; the atmosphere was explosive.

    It was "whatever the sport, you must win".

    Scenario
    If
    there is to be such scenario the surely that can be when the two
    traditionally strong continents of Europe and Asia meet; in the 1980s
    the Euro-Asia tournament was a contest that brought the might of the
    world together.

    Now, in 2009 it is to be regenerated but in a different guise.

    All Stars
    The
    Europe-Asia All Stars will be staged in Beijing on Wednesday 25th and
    26th August and in Istanbul on Tuesday 10th and Wednesday 11th November
    2009.

    It is a contest that involves the continents leading male
    players and following the H.I.S. World Championships in Yokohama, in
    line with the May 2009 ITTF World Rankings, Europe has nominated its
    team.

    Selection
    The
    selected players are: Timo Boll (GER), Vladimir Samsonov (BLR),
    Kalinikos Keanga (GRE), Michael Maze (DEN), Werner Schlager (AUT) and
    only for the event in Istanbul, Gencay Menge (TUR).

    Television
    Chinese National Television (CTTV) and Eurosport will broadcast the event. I
