Ultimate Table Tennis, an initiative by 11 Sports saw GS Worldwide Entertainment associate with 11 Sports yet again to execute the subsequent season.

The league kicked off in Pune on June 14th and continued to June 19th at the Balewadi Indoor Stadium before the tournament shifted to Delhi.

The challenges that GS Sports, a division of GS Worldwide Entertainment faced were short notice and limited work hours. Also, Table Tennis is a sport where the lighting has to be specific i.e. the lux levels have to be maintained at 1500 which is higher than the requirement of any other sport.

As an execution partner, GS Sports spent time doing detailed recces and advance planning that helped the team to put together a flawless show. Before this, GS Worldwide Entertainment has also executed Ultimate Table Tennis Season I and India Open which made the team very familiar with the sport and the event’s requirements.

The scope of work also included branding, security, FOP setup, lights, internet requirements for media and VIP guests and PMOA setup (Player and Match official area). Accreditation was assisted by Book My Show who are also the ticketing partner for the tournament. 4 different bleachers were set up for VIP guests, Media, general stands and ball boys. A separate Practice area for the players was also in place with 9 table tennis tables for the players. The lux levels at the practice area were the same as the FOP viz. 1500 lux levels.

Door Step Health was on board as the medical partner in the Pune leg for medical services and emergencies. General stands also consisted of a concessions area for food and beverage requirements whereas VIP and player lounge had Marriott assisting 11 sports for all the F&B requirements.

Bunty Walia, founder of GS Worldwide Entertainment graced the event with his presence on one of the days in Pune and quoted, “Ultimate Table Tennis is the stepping stone for Table Tennis to reach where it deserves to be in India. The sport is beautiful and the recent success at Commonwealth Games in Australia has also gained us more support from the audiences and the media which is great for the sport. At GS we aim at being a part of such events which encourage budding athletes of the country to take up sports not just as a hobby but choose it as their career. With the Pune leg ending, we move to Delhi and Kolkata where our teams are working overnight simultaneously to present an ideal show.”

The Ultimate Table Tennis 2018, Pune Leg was hosted from June 14th to 19th at the Balewadi Stadium.
