Nine nations in fight for title in Buzau

Romania again took hard challenge to organize ROMSTAL European Mixed Doubles Championships in Buzau. Not because agile organizers have lack or skills, or any other problem with the organizing aspect, but in reason that this event was unfairly tucked away to the margins in Europe.

“Most of the time I spend explaining the importance of this Event. And I had to do it despite the fact that the ITTF submitted a proposal to the International Olympic Committee to add a mixed doubles medal to the Rio de Janeiro 2016 Olympic program. If it is good enough for Olympics, why should we abound it here in Europe. It is great opportunity for nations at Old Continent to gain the medal. There is no reason to throw away that opportunity” explained PR and Marketing Manager Beatrice ROMANESCU Nine countries with 19 pairings accepted the challenge this year. Belarus, Czech Republic, Italy, Montenegro, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia and Turkey will fight for title at the Event that starts tomorrow and concludes on Sunday.

Like year earlier the organize ROMSTAL European Mixed Doubles Championships will be played in Buzau in Sala Sporturilor “Romeo Iamandi”. The best of the action will be available LIVE and FREE on ETTU TV powered by as well On Demand after the matches have been played.

Last year’s champions Elizabeta SAMARA and Andrei FILIMON will play again and they are looking for het-trick. Hunor SZOCS and Camelia POSTOACA, Constantin CIOTI and Iulia NECULA, Ovidiu IONESCU and Bernadette SZOCS, Lucian MUNTEANU and Cristina HIRICI will also represent host nation.
