The World Championship of Ping Pong returns to London’s Alexandra Palace in January for what promises to be another pulsating year and promoters Matchroom Sport are launching ticket sales with a special Kids Go Free offer.

For 2016 the event expands to three days with play on the evenings of Friday, Saturday and Sunday, January 22 to 24.

The event features 64 players from all over the world, headed by defending champion Andrew Baggaley of England.

Tickets are on sale now at, priced £15 per session for adults (£10 concessions), with a season ticket allowing entry to all three sessions just £37.50 (£25 concessions).

But if you use the promo code WCPPKIDSGOFREE then you can receive up to two free concession tickets for every adult ticket purchased! This offer is valid across all three sessions and season tickets.

The tournament takes place over three sessions, with a double elimination group stage featuring eight groups played out on eight tables on the Friday evening before the last 32 enter a knockout stage played across two tables on the Saturday evening, which also included the last 16.

Sunday sees the four quarter-finals followed by the two semi-finals and then the championship match where the destination of the winner’s cheque and trophy will be determined.
