When he is not evangelising digital, Vivek Bhargava is playing table tennis. The DAN Performance Group CEO is a passionate table tennis enthusiast, he has been a medalist in the last two national tournaments in the 40-plus category and has helped setup and run a table tennis academy in Central Mumbai.


Now iProspect India, a part of the Dentsu Aegis Network, has grabbed sponsorship of the team iProspect Challengers consisting of star players such as Han Ying (World Rank 6), Petrissa Solja (World Rank 13), Andrej Gacina (World Rank 18), Li Ping (World Rank 26) and Soumyajit Ghosh (Youngest National Champion and Qualifier for London Olympics).


The league consists of 48 International and domestic players forming six teams. The inaugural season of the country’s first ever professional table tennis league will be played from July 13 to July 30, 2017.


Said Bhargava: “iProspect was the title sponsor for the first two seasons of Mumbai Super League – it was time to attempt doing something much larger. I believe that every kid should attempt playing a competitive sport. It teaches you two things- one, to lose early in life and how to handle it and two, the only way to improve your game is to work harder – life is the same!”

Commenting about the association with the league, Rubeena Singh, CEO, iProspect India said, “We are excited to be associated with Ultimate Table Tennis League… TT is a game that demands quick reflexes, quick decisions and extreme agility- quite like the way we run our performance marketing business, generating alpha ROI for our clients’ media spends.”
