World Championships of Table Tennis stamps from France

May 16th, 2013

The 52nd edition of the World Individual Table Tennis Championships will be held for the fourth time in France. Ten years after the coronation of Werner Schlager, the competition is back in the French capital. It will also be a unique opportunity to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Jean-Philippe Gatien's title of world champion.

La Poste issued a set of two stamps dedicated to women and men competitions to celebrate the Championships and the world's best tennis players to compete for a week at the Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy.
