BBC digital platforms to show home ITTF Team World Cup
The BBC, the UK public-service broadcaster, has agreed a deal to show this week's table tennis ITTF Team World Cup in London.
Action from all four days of the tournament, which runs from 22 to 25 February, will be shown live on the BBC Sport website and via the BBC Sport App.
Sara Sutcliffe, chief executive of Table Tennis England, said: “It was of key importance to us and the ITTF that, as well as thousands of spectators watching the action at the Copper Box, countless more would be able to see live broadcast coverage. The nationwide reach of the BBC ensures that this will be possible…it shows that table tennis is recognised by broadcasters as an exciting, telegenic sport which they want to bring to a wider audience.”
As part of the agreement with Table Tennis England, the BBC will broadcast the 2018 PG Mutual English National Championships on 3 and 4 March.
