World Table Tennis Championship Is Coming To Houston
The upcoming World Table Tennis Championship is scheduled to be held in Houston, Texas, from November 23-29. It will be the 56th edition of the championship and the first time ever to be held in the United States.
The Houston Sports Authority CEO Janice Burke along with CFO Michael Brown of the International Table Tennis Federation hosted a news conference at the Southern TV studio to announce to the entire international community this historic news about this great event.
We will be here to welcome the thousands of players from more than 125 countries who will visit this great city of Houston, Texas. This will be the first time this event will be held in America and the first time ever held outside of Europe and Asia since 1939.
The last event that was held in Budapest in 2019 had a global reach of over 500 million fans across both TV and digital platforms.
In 1971 when the United States table tennis team was invited to China, the “ping-pong diplomacy” was successful and resulted in opening up the US-China relationship.
Today, the tensions between the two countries still persist. We really need to promote the people’s diplomacy to promote a better relationship between the U.S. and China for the best future for all of us.
