GS Entertainment Ultimate Table Tennis League
Before the commencement of the Ultimate Table Tennis Season 2, Player Draft was set up at the NSCI Palace Hall which saw six teams and several star table tennis players, both national and international. The whole event was web broadcasted on Facebook and hence the ambience was to have a rich look with core elements of table tennis and teams.
After a successful Season 1 of Ultimate Table Tennis, 11even Sports came up with the second edition of the tournament. The Player Draft was conducted at NSCI Palace Hall where six teams were out to choose new teams for the tournament.
GS acquired the venue a night before and had the challenge to set up the whole event venue in less than 24 hours. The task was successfully achieved with an overnight drill and team dedication. 3 LED walls were set up to display updates and player drafting details. Six round tables were set up in the center area for the six teams to take part in the player draft. Press and media seating was also provided for the Press Conference after the Player Draft. Branding of the whole venue was done by GS with backdrops and stage set up. A gate arch was set up at the main gate of the venue to give a grand feel of the venue to both league members and teams. Direction and look and feel branding gave the whole venue the flavor of this new season where the teams aim to take table tennis to a whole new level.
The six teams which are going to be a part of the tournament are – Falcons TTC (Season 1 Champions), Yoddhas, RP-SG Mavericks, Challengers, Dabang Smashers T.T.C & Maharashtra United.
The tournament dates were announced during the Press conference after the Player Draft. Season 2 will be spread out in 3 venues with Pune being the initial location of the Ultimate Table tennis followed by Delhi and Kolkata. GS Team is once again proudly associated with Vita Dani and Niraj Bajaj’s 11even Sports for the tournament and will assist venue production and other requirements like last time.
