Shanghai Double Happiness (DHS), a household name associated with table tennis, has become the first ever global partner of World Table Tennis (WTT).
A proud supporter of international table tennis since 1961, DHS has been providing world-class equipment to many high-profile events including the International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) World Table Tennis Championships and the Olympic Games.
As part of this new partnership, DHS will now have the opportunity to further apply their equipment innovation to WTT events, engage fans through WTT’s digital and social channels, and support the ITTF’s developmental efforts globally.
With WTT set to transform the table tennis experience through its revamped structure and increased entertainment value, Mr. Lou Shihe, General Manager of DHS, is delighted to be among the first corporate sponsors to embark on this exciting journey with WTT.
"As a long-term partner of ITTF, DHS is pleased to be part of this journey. We are very excited to partner WTT for 2021-2022, covering a series of world-class events.
"In line with WTT’s bold vision, DHS will provide WTT events with new visual impressions and offer all participating athletes with an amazing experience. We also believe that through these events, we will be able to generate greater interest and participation among the youth for table tennis," said Lou.
WTT Senior Partnerships Director, Ms. Kimberly Koh welcomed the newest partnership agreement with Double Happiness and looks forward to further growing the appeal of both brand names.
"DHS is one of table tennis’ longest standing partners, and their confidence in the growth and future of table tennis with WTT is very encouraging. I would like to thank DHS for their commitment and support, and I believe that the synergy between DHS and WTT will drive both organisations forward. We will work closely together to establish an effective and viable commercial platform to leverage this partnership," said Koh.
WTT Star Contender Doha is currently taking place at the Lusail Sports Arena in Doha, Qatar where 132 athletes from 41 countries are vying for the total prize purse of USD $400,000.
