Koltsovo Airport installs tennis tables in gate areas

Yekaterinburg's Koltsovo Airport announced that it will install numerous table tennis tables in its passenger waiting areas for travelers to use, free of charge, through Sunday.

As a result, airport administration hopes that passengers will use the tables to participate in honor of the Open International Table Tennis Tournament, which is organized each year by the International Table Tennis Federation, Table Tennis Federation of Russia, the Sverdlovsk regional government and the Horizon Table Tennis Club.

This year marks the second time Koltsovo has commemorated the tournament. Finalists from across the world will gather later this year to compete for the top prize of $87,000 dollars.

Aside from Koltsovo, table tennis tables will be installed at the Kurumoch and Nizhny Novogorod airports.
