10 to 17th of September 2023 the European Table Tennis Championships for teams takes place in the Swedish city of Malmö. It is now agreed that Gerflor will deliver the floor for the European Championships in Malmö – a custom made table tennis mat.
Together with the LOC and Swedish Table Tennis Association, Gerflor has decided to play the championships on a blue floor, well in line with the championship’s graphical design.
Gerflor is a well-known company that stands for quality, innovation, and sustainability, and that feels like three areas that are in perfect match with our own values. We are very happy about this cooperation that will give the athletes from all over Europe the best possible conditions to perform on top, says Mr. Dennis Lindahl, president in the Swedish Table Tennis Association.
Gerflor, founded in the French town Villeurbanne in 1938, has since 1948 made the Taraflex-series used for handball, volleyball, badminton, and table tennis.
“Gerflor is delighted to become the “Official Table tennis floor supplier” at the upcoming ETTU 2023 European Championships in cooperation with the Swedish Table tennis federation. Elite players simply love to play on the famous Taraflex ® floor. Further the last ITTF 2018, World Championships in Halmstad, Gerflor is happy to return in Sweden!
