Global Healthcare specialist VIKAND is sponsoring an international table tennis team based in Monaco.
Founded in 1938 by a small group of enthusiasts, AS Monaco Tennis de Table is world renowned having won a large number of trophies in all categories. The first team has played in the amateur French division (National 1) for a number of years, which is the highest level achieved in the Club’s history.
The club has recently doubled in size with 80 active players and are coached by Anthony Geminiani, a state certified trainer and still one of the best players in France.
Every other year the Club’s best players participate in the GSSE Olympic Games of the Small States of Europe, a tournament that gathers the best table tennis players of the participating countries. AS Monaco Tennis de Table is fortunate to have the 8th best ranked women player in the world Xiaoxin Yang.
The Club is proactive in the community in Monaco, encouraging young people to take part. VIKAND’s sponsorship will help the Club’s future goals of improving its teams’ rankings and relaunching its leisure and corporate facilities.
Speaking about why VIKAND has become one of the sponsors Bo Larsen, VIKAND’s Senior Vice President Commercial Partnerships said, “Monaco is one of the key maritime cities and home to many of our clients and partners in the cruise and yachting industry, so we decided it was important to give something back to the community. We like the fact that the Club is very proactive encouraging young people to take part in sport. As a responsible healthcare provider, we always encourage exercise as a way of enjoying social activity and keeping fit.”
ASMTT President Ulrika Quist added, “I am very proud to represent Monaco in my capacity as player and president of Monaco Table Tennis. Prince Albert is a big supporter of our table tennis club and Federation, and we are honoured to be representing Monaco with such a diverse range of players and active members representing 12 different nationalities. The VIKAND sponsorship is a tremendous support for the continued development of our club and opportunities to compete at international events moving forward.”
