iProspect India sponsors ‘iProspect Challengers’ in Ultimate Table Tennis League

iProspect India, the global digital agency from Dentsu Aegis Network, has grabbed sponsorship of the team ‘iProspect Challengers’, consisting of star players such as Han Ying (world rank 6), Petrissa Solja (world ranking 13), Andrej Gacina (world rank 18), Li Ping (world ranking 26) and Soumyajit Ghosh (youngest national champion and qualifier for London Olympics).

The league consists of 48 international and domestic players forming six teams. Each team will have eight players—four men and four women—with an equal mix of overseas and Indian players, apart from a foreign and an Indian coach. Among the 24 men and women, World No. 7 Wong Chun Ting from Hong Kong and a bronze medallist in the men's World Cup 2016, will also be participating this year.
The inaugural season of the country's first ever professional table tennis league will be played from July 13–30, 2017. The first two legs will be held in Chennai and Delhi before Ultimate Table Tennis League shifts base to Mumbai for the finale. The league will be aired live on Star Sports Select HD and streamed live on Hotstar.

Vivek Bhargava, CEO, DAN Performance Group, is a passionate table tennis enthusiast. He has been a medallist in the last two national tournaments in the 40-plus category. He has helped setup and run a table tennis academy atElphinstone Road, Mumbai. This table tennis academy has the world’s most advanced TT robot.“iProspect was the title sponsor for the first two seasons of Mumbai Super League; it was time to attempt doing something much larger. I believe that every kid should attempt playing a competitive sport. It teaches you two things—one, to lose early in life and how to handle it and two, the only way to improve your game is to work harder—life is the same,” says Bhargava.

Commenting about the association with the league, Rubeena Singh, CEO, iProspect India, said, “We are excited to be associated with Ultimate Table Tennis League, a prestigious international table tennis league comprising top world ranking players. The entire iProspect team wishes the team ‘iProspect Challengers' best of luck in this competition. Table Tennis is a game that demands quick reflexes, quick decisions and extreme agility, quite like the way we run our performance marketing business, generating alpha ROI for our clients’ media spends.”
