Yekaterinburg chosen as host city for 2015 European Table Tennis Championship

Yekaterinburg was recently selected to host the 2015 European Table Tennis Championship during an announcement made last week in Moscow by the Russian Table Tennis Federation.

The decision to hold the event in Yekaterinburg was made earlier this month during a closed board meeting of the European Table Tennis Union, RIA Novosti reports.

Cities in Hungary and Spain also submitted applications to host the 2015 European Table Tennis Championship. Germany had initially expressed interest in hosting the event, but had to withdraw its application due to financial reasons.

The 2015 European Table Tennis Championship will take place from Sept. 25 to Oct. 4. The event was last held in Russia in 2010 when Moscow was selected as the host city, according to RIA Novosti.
