2014 ITTF World Tour Kuwait Open

Post by Mark


The International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) World Tour Kuwait Open is taking place in just over a week from February 12th to February 16th. Last year I complained on the lack of publicity for this event and if it wasn’t for a reader who emailed me awhile ago I wouldn’t have found out about it this year as well. Last year I actually only found out about the tournament when the video above of the trick shot started making its rounds across the internet after the tournament was over.

This years tournament is supposed to be the biggest ever for Kuwait with a total of 243 players from 33 national associations taking part [Source]. It is the biggest entry ever received for the Kuwait Open which was first staged in February 2006. Yet for some odd reason there isn’t any publicity or at least I haven’t seen or heard anything about it. I couldn’t even find out where the games will be playing, what the schedules are and where we could get tickets from. So if anyone has this information please share it.

Thanks Francis

    I just called the tour manager regarding the entry fee. He told me that the entry is absolutely free of cost. Hope it would be the best opportunity to view a world sports event at no cost.

    Actually, they usually go big with advertising this event with flyers and posters around commercial areas. They usually have cool TV commercials on KTV 1 of the national team (only the boys) doing crazy cool pong tricks.
    Maybe I just notice all of this because I usually participate in this event.
