Timo BOLL of Germany, who won the men’s singles event last year, is on duty after a tense wait that lasted until the last minute. Timo is ready to defend his title now that he has fully recovered from the rib injury. Timo BOLL has won a total of 28 medals, including 20 gold ones, in singles, doubles, and team events. So far, he has won eight singles events and been on top of the podium.

Dang Qiu – the Gold medal

Here are the best points of Dang Qiu, the champion of the European Championship 2022. He is now the best penholder in Europe. If Xu Xin retires, then he will be the best penholder in the world.

Dang Qiu has defeated many top table tennis players, including Timo Boll, Darko Jorgic, Mattias Falck. He was improving so fast, especially his serve, and his backhand control attack.

His style is similar to Wang Hao’s playing style. Now, if you like penhold style, then go for it. With modern techniques, penhold style can compete with the shakehand grip.

Award podium

Here is the podium of the European Championships 2022.


Timo Boll and Dimitrij Ovtcharov

Today, on the first day of the tournament, we will watch the first rounds of the Doubles and Mixed Doubles events. The Singles Group Stages start tomorrow.

France get the Gold medal of Mixed Doubles

France has the best mixed doubles in table tennis.

Yes, congratulations to Emmanuel LEBESSON et Jia Nan Yuan, who is the Champion of mixed doubles in Europe this year 2022.

We feel that their double is well established. In the semi and the final, Jia Nan posed a lot of problems during his backhand starts in the diagonal. Manu knew how to vary his services and the discounts in order to allow his teammate to install his game. Congratulations to them both.

Men’s Doubles event

Mattias FALCK and Kristian KARLSSON of Sweden are the new winners of the Men’s Doubles event at the European Championships in Munich. In the final, they beat Robert GARDOS and Daniel HABESOHN 3:1.
