      T2 Asia Pacific Table Tennis League 2017!

      The new inaugural 'T2 Asia Pacific Table Tennis League' has been announced! Players will compete in the men's, women's and mixed-team events.

      12 male players and 12 female players will be competing in the new league which has an impressive $1.5 million prize fund from July to December in Hong Kong!



      The games will introduce several innovative ideas to change things up for the sport. To make the game more spectator-friendly, it will incorporate slow-motion presentation while adopting a player draft and a unique scoring system. Time limits of 24 minutes per match will be imposed on each match. These innovative concepts will be introduced in the hopes to improve spectators but hopefully great for the spectators.

      Visit T2APAC's Website or Facebook Page for all the latest news on the T2APAC League.

      There will be 6 rounds from June 27th to November 4th 2017.

      Time limits: please don't do this. I hate when someone wants to speed up my matchplay.
      Player draft: yes, yes and YES! No more easy win, balanced teams.

      Anyone know who the other players are who have been invited?

      This sort of money should attract the Chinese?

      I do not like the idea of time limits either. I don't really know what kind of time limits they mean, but it could be problematic. Otherwise, I am excited for this, and hope that some more big names join the league! Hopefully my boy Jung Youngsik
      Enter the Hero

      I hope Chinese players can enter. Perhaps they won't due to China Super League commitments?

      I think they're trying to incorporate time limits, because matches can go for 30 mins to 50 mins or even an hour when best of 7 and it goes the distance and I suppose that wouldn't be that good for TV or for spectators.Though in my opinion, shortening the sets to 3, then 5 for a main draw of sorts seems better than a time limit.In the CTTSL you have the set goin til 7 instead of 11 in the deciders, so let's see what they'll do. Well anyhow, they can always change the rules as it seems they are still prototyping this league somewhat.

      If this league is a success and attracts major sponsors it could be mimicked around the world!

      I'm looking forward to the big events this year with TTX and to see how they unfold.

      They've just gotten Tibhar as their Official Rubber Partner too.

      A sign for more brand sponsorship for the league and for the players?

      Time is important but I wouldn't do this way. Better idea is to provide more balls like in China league, so the time between points is limited, also there should be quicker serve execution not like Ma long did last time in Qatar Open, when he was taking a lot of time to prepare for serve. Also if the will have better media cover they should provide availability of 2 calls per match so each player can check in slow motion when point is discussed.
