Australian Table Tennis Fans: How to Enjoy Watching Matches and Cheering

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Table tennis has become increasingly popular in Australia in recent years, and it’s easy to see why. Our country had undergone a painful, decades-long period of bad results in the sport until the Paralympic team of 2021 successfully managed to break the spell. That year, Australia won a gold medal in the sport, and with it, our hearts. This remarkable table tennis team sparked a lasting love for the sport down under, bagging two gold medals within the same hour.

Australia is currently in a period of table tennis euphoria, with huge increases in the number of people picking up a racket and ball. If you’re wondering how you can get in on the hype and get more involved with watching table tennis, this is the article for you. Read on to discover how to get the most out of matches by finding a team to support, creating events with friends and placing a bet.

Find the Best Channels

Table tennis isn’t a mainstream sport in the way that football or rugby is, making it much harder to find matches to watch. Watchable games are out there but you’ll have to search around for them. Of course, the sport is included as part of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, but that’s only every four years and you’ll need to find your fix in the meantime.

Establish whether your TV provider offers sports channels and enquire as to whether any of these show table tennis games. Alternatively, you could check if any matches are being live-streamed on YouTube. Once you’ve found the best places to watch table tennis matches, you’re ready to enjoy them with friends and family.

Pick a Team to Support

Table tennis is so much more enjoyable when you have a team to root for. Without a team to support, you’re just cheering without purpose. Finding your team gives you a reason for tuning in and will up the stakes of the game. During international games, you can cheer on Australia, of course – but who can you support during local games or international games that don’t include Australia?

Perhaps your city or town has a local team you can get behind, or you could search for teams around the world to find your favourite players. Whoever you choose to support, make sure you can find their matches online.

Go to See Matches in Person

Nothing beats the excitement of watching live sporting fixtures in a stadium. Sure, these days, the high-definition picture and high-quality sound of television matches are amazing, but you can’t truly soak up the atmosphere unless you’re in the stadium cheering on the players from the sidelines. There are plenty of table tennis matches you can attend. Simply search online for your nearest venue and find a date that suits you.

Take your love of table tennis to the next level by attending a game in person. You’ll become part of a proud community of supporters and have the chance to meet like-minded people.

Bet on a Match

One way to ensure that you get maximum enjoyment from watching sports is to place a bet. Table tennis betting sites make this easy, offering you the chance to financially back your favourite players and teams. By placing a bet, you’ll have a bigger stake in the game you’re watching, which makes it a lot more exciting.

Get Your Friends Involved

Sports are best enjoyed together, so why not get your friends on board with your new favourite sport? Table tennis is one of the most interesting sports in the world and each game promises suspense and shock twists. We’re confident that your friends will love watching table tennis as much as you do.

To get your friends interested in the game, you could invite them round to your house to watch some matches. You could set the stream up on the big screen and provide drinks and snacks. Why not take the fun one step further and create some cocktails based on the game and players?

You could even encourage your friends to turn the match into a friendly wager. Each attendee backs one of the players and puts AU$5 in a bowl. The attendees who back the winning player then split the cash.

Play it Yourself

Watching a sport you love is only half of the fun. Playing it is the other half, as evidenced by the rise in pickleball players. By taking up table tennis yourself, whether professionally or for fun, you’ll better understand the game and how matches work. This will make watching the game easier to understand and more enjoyable as you learn new techniques.
