After the massive success of the table tennis event at the Rio 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games, San-Ei has signed up as the official table supplier for Tokyo 2020, the International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) has announced.
The Japanese table manufacturer was responsible for the picturesque Infinity table used during competitions at Rio 2016.
San-Ei President Shin Miura stated: "All of us at San-Ei are proud to be selected as the official table supplier for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games, after the success of the Rio 2016 Games. As was the case in Rio 2016, the table that we will supply in Tokyo 2020 will be highly tuned for performance and be visually spectacular. We promise to go past infinity!"
Tokyo 2020 will be even more significant for the Japanese company San-Ei as they get to show off their table and brand at their home Games.
ITTF President Thomas Weikert added on about the deal that was brokered by TMS International: "San-Ei will forever be part of table history, after the iconic table at Rio 2016 which we love. The ITTF is very pleased to be continuing this fruitful partnership and I can't wait to see the table that San-Ei will create for Tokyo 2020 to again portray our sport in the best possible light to the world."
