Upon the unveiling of the table, ITTF Marketing Director Steve Dainton stated: “Double Happiness has been one of our biggest supporters over recent years and has always been working with the ITTF for the development and innovation of the sport. It’s great to see a table which takes their traditional “rainbow” design slightly modernized and incorporated with the branding of Suzhou”
The polygonal surface of undercarriage makes it different from other rainbow tables, while newly designed lighting effects make the table have a unique 3D effect.
Each surface of polygon reflecting beautiful but not harsh light, greatly improving visual effect without hampering the games, an excellent balance between beauty and practicality.
The gold undercarriage and the purple table top, which were used at the 2013 World Table Tennis Championships in Paris, has began to create a brand legacy linked with the World Championships.

It’s a great honor for an equipment manufacturer to continue providing equipment to World Table Tennis Championships in the homeland of our company.
