T2 posted on FB today that T2 APAC (https://www.facebook.com/t2apac/?hc_ref=ARROXOyTrEyNy_ku1PZf79pkZZZugvjL_ONIEFOGhYCVMKu9S9XxohVFdNyjgQ6QD_A&fref=nf)

"Huge announcement coming soon! This will change the shape of table tennis! Stay tuned!"

Now, we already know about the deal with ITTF, so what will this be? And do we want to change the shape of table tennis? To what, oval, triangle....?

50mm ball? Table size doubled?

This is a joint T2 and ITTF announcement. Frank Ji and Steve Dainton are playing doubles in Vegas with "2nd of July t-shirts"... It might be a number of things: Including T2 in the world tour, expanding T2 to other leagues, or even trying out some (more) of the format in ITTF tournaments (kill zone, timing, no deuce and so on...)... We'll see...

I like the concept of the India Ultimate League as well as T2.

Maybe their new concept is to have women and men compete vs each other.

back to 38mm balls?
Only hardbats/sandpaper?
Or legal boosting with same rubber colours and frictionless pips??

38mm with the modern equipment would be absolutely devastating but interesting to see :)

Restricting players below the age of 18 from playing with the adults?
:p

Waldner coaches

That would make the shape rounder, for sure.

Slightly larger table and slightly higher net. Introduce 38mm ball at the same time.

The larger table and higher netwill increase the chance of long rally. The 38mm ball will bring back the former glorious table tennis - fast and spinny rally.

Passionate about TT

I wonder if a larger table will indeed bring more long rallies. A longer table certainly will, but a wider one - good players might just wreck each other with some ridiculous angles. Especially those practicing all the more popular close to the table style.

T2 has adapted the same Marketing as Rubber Producers, who describe their rubbers as"Probably Magic" to "Perfect" who will shake the TT World as we know it. Hoping T2 lives up to the hype.

Balls shaped like pyramids.

ITTF Twitter also arranged a announcement on the same day, and it is done with Partnership of Sportsmaster, which as far as i understand is a Sports Surface Maker. So maybe we will get new tables or something.

Do you mean Seamaster?

I'm scared that they change the rules again. Change the marketing, change the video quality and the video angle, change the team format maybe but don't change the rules of the game.

Interactive online 4K 60p and 2K 120p platform with selectable replay and slowmo and selectable 6 cam angles would be great.

So, becomes part of World Tour. "Diamond Event". Not such a surprise.

Correction "Diamond Tier Event".
