The T-League’s philosophy is to enhance the appeal of table tennis by “scientificizing table tennis”. While the introduction of a video judgment system is being promoted in other sports, a replay challenge is also being used as a trial in order to use the power of video and make progress in games more quickly and accurately in the sport of table tennis. I will do it. In the T-League, we will continue to study to make it easier for fans to enjoy table tennis.
