The new inter-club organization of the European Union of Sports (ETTU), started in April and one last part in the first phase of women, on the weekend of May 28 and 29, includes Panathinaikos. This year’s Greek Cup winner goes today, Friday 27/05 to Riga, Latvia, where the next two days he will claim the qualification to the quarterfinals as the leader of the group for Regions B, D, G, H.
The “clover” will face the “hostess” Salaspils GTK and the Belgian KTTC AFP Antwerpen. In the mission of the “greens” are Katerina Toliou, Elisabeth Terpou, Sandra Pergel and Maria Artsetou, with the latter also being the coach of the club. The Europe Trophy is the 3rd ranked European Club Cup after the Champions League and the Europe Cup, Panathinaikos is the only representative of Greek table tennis in Europe this year and its main goal is to qualify for the quarterfinals.
ETTU divided the races into a total of eight districts. Four groups were made for women without the same number of teams, in fact in the group of Panathinaikos, which is the last, which is done in time, was the GTTF from Greenland, but withdrew its participation.
Each group is conducted with the “one to all” system, each group meeting is judged in favor of the team that reaches the first three victories, while in each individual match, which goes to 2-2, the fifth set will end when one of the two athletes reach the sixth and not the 11th point, as, that is, happens in the other two European Cups.
The games start on Saturday afternoon, Panathinaikos meets Salaspils and later the same day they face Antwerp. The teams from Latvia and Belgium will play against each other on Sunday. The first two places in the group qualify for the 8th and more specifically in the Europe Trophy Grand Final, which is set for the period 17 to 19 June 2022.
We remind you that Panathinaikos has stated in Europe and Ana Tofant. Slovenia is not in the mission for Latvia, but again the team has the chances with its side to achieve its first goal.
