So recently, there have been a rise of many new leagues including the T2apac league, the Indian Ultimate Table Tennis league (UTT) and the T league in Japan. I think all of them have or are going to have similar match structures where the game count is what really matters. The amazing thing is the amount of money that the table tennis players are going to be making with the T2apac players making 50 USD per point. This is astonishing to me and it really excites me that table tennis is going to be more publicized as a spectator sport.
My only complaint is about the teams. Sure, they are teams but they are not backed by any company or any specific location which makes it hard for me to support any of them. For a spectator sport to be successful, it needs teams that you actually care about. Hence, I really hope that the upcoming T league will have better teams (ie. Tokyo Hawks, Nissan Eagles, etc.) I have heard that the T league will have some companies sponsoring the teams but I am not 100% sure.
