Two continental events were staged in September: Nigeria’s Quadri Aruna and Egypt’s Dina Meshref led by example at the 2018 ITTF African Championships while the singles gold medals on offer at the Liebherr 2018 European Championships were awarded to Germany’s Timo Boll and Poland’s Li Qian.
Here is the Pongcast question of the month: How many times has Timo Boll won the Men’s Singles title at the European Championships?
Comment your answer on the Pongcast via the ITTF Facebook page and share the video for a chance to win a piece of gear from Nittaku. The winner will be picked at random.
Toward the latter stages of the month the attention shifted to China for the Uncle Pop 2018 ITTF Women’s World Cup in Chengdu, which provided World and Olympic Champion Ding Ning with yet another opportunity to shine against the world’s finest players.
