Establishment of professional table tennis team based in Korea Exchange and Busan

The Korea Exchange Pro Table Tennis Team, which participates in the Korea Professional Table Tennis League Men’s Korea League (1st division), was officially launched on the 23rd.

The Korea Exchange announced that it held an inauguration ceremony for the Korea Exchange Professional Table Tennis Team, the 8th team in the Korea League, at a hotel in Haeundae-gu, Busan on the afternoon of the same day. Previously, Busan City and the Korea Exchange signed a business agreement to establish a professional table tennis team in July.

The Korea Exchange professional table tennis team recruited national players Ahn Jae-hyeon and Hwang Min-ha along with first coach Yoo Nam-gyu, coach Yoon Sang-jun and trainer Hong Seok-pyo. In addition, the team was composed of Seo Joong-won and Gil Min-seok.

Byung-Doo Son, Chairman of the Korea Exchange, said, “We will provide full support until the day when you think of Busan when you think of table tennis, and table tennis when you think of Busan.” I will aim for a gold medal at the Paris Olympics in the same year.” He also said that as a long-term goal, “We will produce star players, create a professional table tennis league with high level of performance, and create an environment in which the table tennis world grows together through good competition and continuous investment.” Nam-gyu Yoo, the first coach, said, “I will play table tennis that impresses fans by maximizing my experience as a player and my leadership capacity as a coach.” I will try my best to give it back.”
