During the event on Wednesday July 10, 2024 evening starting from h 15:00, TTX (Table Tennis X) amateur tournamentsthe new game “format” launched in 2016 by ITTF with a formula capable of making the practice of our sport even more accessible, integrated, fun and dynamic.
The tournaments, each of which will be reserved for a maximum of 128 participants, will be open to the WMTTC participants themselves, but above all to their accompanying persons, who will also have the opportunity to enjoy a particularly entertaining sporting experience.
Each tournament will last a maximum of about 3 hours!
TTX is played on a normal game table. The TTX rackets are table tennis rackets with a wooden frame but no coverings, thus offering a different playing experience by eliminating any technicalities and allowing even the less experienced to play and confront themselves with those who have been playing for longer.
The TTX ball is larger and heavier than that of table tennis to prevent (if played outdoors) wind and less than ideal weather conditions from greatly affecting the game.
But the real novelty of the format is that TTX is played in time. Each set lasts 2 minutes. The player who scores the most points in the two minutes wins the game. The player who wins 2 of the 3 sets wins the match.
All in the name of fair play!
