Butterfly Signed Table Tennis Table Charity Auction

Got some spare money with a love for a rare pink table tennis table? The folks at Butterfly are auctioning a signed table for a good cause. I’m guessing shipping won’t be cheap to the US, but it is a unique item.

To mark our 70th anniversary we are auctioning off our famous pink table. This is the exact table that was used in our award winning advert “Timo Bolls Nightmare“, featuring Timo Boll and Michael Maze. During the 2018 World Table Tennis Championships and subsequently, the following Butterfly Pros all left their autographs on the table: Timo Boll, Michael Maze, Jun Mizutani, Dimitrij Ovtcharov, Tomokazu Harimoto, Kristian Karlsson, Adrian Crisan, Kenta Matsudaira, Jonathan Groth, Wong Chungting, Bastian Steger, Omar Assar, Daniela Dodean, Elizabeta Samara, Andrej Gacina, Adina Diaconu, Gustavo Tsuboi, Anton Källberg, Dina Meshref, Ruwen Filus, Tiago Apolonia.

All proceeds of the auction will go to the Ping Pong Parkinson campaign. Ping Pong Parkinson was founded by Croatian-American recording artist, composer, performer, producer and peace activist Nenad Bach on March 1, 2017, with the aim of stopping the progression of Parkinson’s disease by using table tennis as a form of physiotherapy. The model is based on the concept of Neuroplasticity – the brain’s ability to create new neurons and connections through challenging physical movement.
