DeCember 2019 OCEANIA OLYMPIC QUALIFYING AND ITTF OCEANIA TOUR EVENTS
Congratulations to the event organisers, sponsors, volunteers, players and spectators for an outstanding event held 6-8 December 2019 at the MPTTA stadium (see https://ittfoceania.com/ and https://www.ittf.com/tournament/5225/2019/ittf-oceania-olympic-team-qualification/).
Special thanks to the club volunteers who helped in catering and in the huge task of setting up to meet the requirements of the tournament, and then reinstating the stadium for everyday club use.
Huge congratulations to the Australian players for making the 2020 Tokyo Olympics in both women’s and men’s teams events! …and to the players who won individual events.
Matches over the 3 days were exciting and inspiring to watch – you can watch again online via the link above or go to the ITTF Oceania Facebook page under videos (https://www.facebook.com/pg/ITTFOceania/videos/?ref=page_internal). You will see some of the best table tennis Australia, New Zealand, PNG and Fiji have to offer.
As a result of MPTTA hosting the 3 day event we are the beneficiaries of wonderful new equipment including two new underlit DHS international show tables, 7 international tournament quality DHS tables, many barriers and DHS balls. In parallel MPTTA also upgraded the stadium lighting to over 1000 lumens on all courts. When combined with the ITTF tournament equipment MPTTA now has a world class facility to encourage participation, to enable hosting of major tournaments, and to help sustain a vibrant and growing club for the Mornington Peninsula. Together with the club's planned stadium extension, MPTTA will in coming years be positioned as a leading club in Australia and able to cater for increased participation.
On behalf of MPTTA Board of Directors, players and community, a big thank you to ITTF, TTA and to the ITTF event sponsors DHS and the Victorian Government for helping us provide a top quality stadium to match our love of the sport of table tennis.
