Butterfly is proud to sponsor Vlad Farcas and Mishel Levinski at the World Championships of Ping Pong.

Vlad advanced from the group stage with two straight wins and reached the round of 32 where he had 2 match points but wasn’t able to convert them. This is his 6th participation at this tournament and he feel that his level improved and just need a little bit more inspiration in the key moments. Vlad’s match was live on the main stage in front of of 1000 people and live on SkySports.

Mishel didn’t advance from the group stage but played pretty well. For his first time he did great considering everybody there has experience in sandpaper ping pong.


The BetVictor World Championship of Ping Pong returns to Alexandra Palace, London, January 25-26, 2020.

The game that fell out of favour with the advent of super-spin inducing rubber bats years ago is back in the mainstream thanks to a potent mixture of speed, power and old-fashioned skill courtesy of the technology-free sandpaper bats.

Now into its eighth year at the iconic Alexandra Palace, London, the World Championship is a throwback to the early days of table tennis and is catapulting ping pong into the big league and onto the international television stage.
