Next stop: Tokyo


One of the absolute highlights from the perspective of (still) - celluloid aces (note: as of summer 2014 change to plastic balls) are undoubtedly the Table Tennis World Team Championships, starting 28 April 2014 in the Japanese capital. For eight days the nine million people cosmopolitan city Tokyo will be the scene of the biggest table tennis spectacle in 2014.


Many athletes of the Werner Schlager Academy will not only try to add a [further] chapter of table tennis history for their countries, but also have the chance to present themselves at one of the largest stages in the world.


In the Asian metropolis WSA players from 16 nations are at the start.


With the whole Austrian Men’s National Team (Robert Gardos, Stefan Fegerl, Chen Weixing, Daniel Habesohn, Dominik Habesohn) as well as a very important part of the Portuguese team (Marcos Freitas, João Monteiro), the Werner Schlager Academy provides top-ranking representatives at the Team Championships. But also from Russia (Alexander Shibaev), Italy (Mihai Bobocica), Romania (Daniela Dodean - Monteiro), Serbia (Andrea Todorovic) and Luxembourg (Sarah DeNutte) important national players are in the ranks of the table tennis high performance centre at the gates of Vienna.


Daniel Reed (UK), Stanislav Golovanov (Bulgaria), Tetyana Bilenko, Ievgeniia Vasylieva (Ukraine), Tamolwan Khetkhuan (Thailand), Lea Rakovac (Croatia), Dora Madarasz (Hungary), Alex Galic (Slovenia), Rachel Aschwanden (Switzerland) and Kirill Gerasimenko (Kazakhstan) are completing the strong field.


Due to the outstanding performance and the qualitative training in recent weeks and months, there are reasonable hopes for great success of WSA-athletes at the Team World Cup.

Starting on 3 May 2014, Euro Sport is broadcasting from the Team's World Cup:
