PACE TYRES Supported Chinese Ping Pong Superstars at World Championships

The 2020 BetVictor World Championship of Ping Pong returned to Alexandra Palace London for the eighth consecutive year at the end of January with national teams from all over the world competing for the top prize. Leading global Contract Tyre manufacturer, SD-International (SDI)  has sponsored the national team in China since 2017 through their popular brand – PACE, but this year it is SDI’s first time to make their debut at the event as Official Chinese Team Sponsor.



SDI Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Mike Zhang says, “Our PACE range of tyres has progressively grown in popularity since being launched in Europe in 2006 and now we are looking to step up the brand’s image to the next level in the UK and Europe by increasing our sponsorship of the Chinese national team in London. At the same time SDI are about to launch the Pace brand in the Chinese market.”

The game of Ping Pong is completely different to table tennis in several ways including the fact that the bats used are produced from wood and have no rubber or sponge coverings but are just covered with a fine blue sandpaper material. So the rallies between players can be much longer and faster.



Andy Baron, SDI’s Sales Manager for the UK and Ireland adds, “Having our PACE brand sponsor the leading Chinese national team at such a prestigious sporting event at one of the UK’s most popular entertainment venues gives SDI the perfect platform to further promote our brands (which also include ZETA and TOLEDO) and services to the UK’s highly competitive market sector.
