Until July 13, the Sports Palace of Cartagena will be the epicenter of the national table tennis. The municipality has been organizing since yesterday the Spanish Championship of this sport, which attracts two thousand people from all over the country between players, technical bodies, referees and family members.

The twenty days of competition started yesterday with the first competitions in the youth and snack categories. Paddlers under 23 (under 23), children, pre-benjamins, benjamins and with physical and intellectual disabilities will be added sequentially. The Department of Sports and the Federation, represented by President David Corral, have installed more than thirty gaming tables, both on the parquet floors of the main track and the auxiliary track.
The Spanish Championship provides sports coverage for the municipality in the summer, now that the Jimbee Cartagena, the Algar Surmenor and the Cebé, who use the Palacio de Deportes every day, are on holiday. The event is broadcast worldwide via the Spanish Table Tennis Federation.
This sport adds successes in the municipality, nationally and worldwide, thanks to the UCAM Cartagena Table Tennis. This club has twenty league titles, seventeen Copa de la Reina and four European Cups. No other team in the Murcia region has won as many trophies as this one. Last season, he doubled and was close to the treble when he fell in the final round of the final league game. Those of Jesús Cantero play in Barrio Peral.
