Olympics Table Tennis Venue

The People's Republic of China hosted the Olympic Games in Beijing from the 8 to 24 August 2008.

The table tennis competition started on Wednesday 13 August 2008, and with the home nation expected to take several gold medals, there was a fantastic atmosphere.

A fabulous new state-of-the-art venue, 8km from the Olympic Village, was built at Peking University specifically for this event - so the players had the best possible conditions in which to play.

It had seating for 8,000 spectators - with 6,000 seats being permanent and 2,000 temporary.
