Tickets for the World Table Tennis Cup Finals in Singapore have gone on sale, with fans able to watch Olympic champions Chen Meng and Zan Zhendong of China, as well as Singapore’s Feng Tianwei battle it out for the title and prize money.
The championships are set to showcase the top 16 players in each of the men’s and women’s singles categories, as it takes place in Singapore from December 4-7.
Tickets are available from SISTIC, which recently partnered with Irish ticketing distribution platform Coras.
A maximum of 900 fans will be able to attend each session, and ticket holders also need to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 or provide proof of a negative test before entering the event.
The price of tickets range from S$38 (£20/$27/€24) to S$258.
Sport Singapore chief Lim Teck Yin told The Straits Times: “We are honoured to be the host city for the inaugural WTT Cup Finals. Staging the event in Singapore signals our commitment to bring sport back safely for everyone. The WTT Cup Finals is an excellent opportunity to enliven our local table tennis community and inspire more young athletes to engage in the sport.”
The Finals will be an inaugural season-ending event and will be held at the OCBC Arena at Singapore Sports Hub. The WTT was launched by the International Table Tennis Federation in 2020 and is modelled after Grand Slams in tennis.
The top tier will have four Grand Smash tournaments with each 10-day event featuring 64 men and women’s singles players. There will also be a doubles competition and three other tiers under the WTT series, which includes the WTT Cup Finals and the WTT Champion Series.
Up-and-coming and lower-ranked players will have the opportunity to compete in the WTT Contender series, which is split into the Star Contender and Contender competitions.
