GS Worldwide Entertainment Ultimate Table Tennis League
GS Worldwide Entertainment associated with Ultimate Table Tennis, promoted by Vita Dani and Niraj Bajaj, to execute the third season of the premier table tennis league in India. The league started in New Delhi on July 25th, 2019 and ended with the grand finale on 11th August 2019at the Thyagaraj Stadium.
Defending champions Dabang Delhi T.T.C. took on the newly joined Puneri Paltan Table Tennis in the opening encounter of the competition.
As the venue execution partner, GS Sports spent time doing detailed recce and advanced planning that helped the team put together a flawless show. The operations were executed well because of the prior experience of GS Sports at the venue, having executed the earlier UTT Seasons 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, Field Of Play setup, lights, internet requirements for media and VIP guests and PMOA setup (Player and Match Officials Area). Different bleachers were set up for VIP guests, Media, and ball boys. A separate practice area for the players was also in place with multiple table tennis tables for the players.
The GS Sports team set up the lighting at the venue, which is a key aspect for the game since the requirement for table tennis is very specific, compared to any other sport. The lux level at the practice area was the same as the Field of Play viz. 1500 lux levels. In addition to the lighting, the GS team also made the necessary arrangements at the venue for sound and housekeeping. The required licenses for the event were also acquired in time by the GS Sports team.
The entire UTT Season 3 was live broadcast on the Star Sports network and Hotstar, which was seamlessly done as a result of the proper lighting and other necessary arrangements at the venue done by the GS team.
Ultimate Table Tennis Season 3 this year was contested between six city-based franchise-owned teams – Chennai Lions, Dabang Delhi T.T.C., Goa Challengers, Puneri Paltan Table Tennis, RP-SG Mavericks Kolkata, and U Mumba TT. The opening ceremony of the competition was graced by the honorable Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Youth Affairs and Sports, Kiren Rijiju. The UTT Season 3 was won by the Chennai Lions franchise as they defeated Dabang Delhi T.T.C. in the final.
Bunty Walia, the founder of GS Sports, quoted, “We, at GS Sports, were honored and delighted to be associated with UTT for handling the venue execution for Season 3. UTT is the stepping stone for Table Tennis to reach where it deserves to be in India. The sport is highly entertaining and the recent success of the players on the world stage has also helped it gain more support from the audiences and the media which is great for the sport. At GS Sports, we aim to continue 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.”
