Lastly, Hong Kong’s Wong Chun Ting and Doo Hoi Kem, the Seamaster 2018 World Tour Grand Finals gold medallists, are seeded first for the Mixed Doubles draw.
Moving forward, the well-known brand in Asia when it comes to Sports betting and Casino gaming, 12BET has established different sponsorships with this kind of event, especially during the 2018 ITTF Team World Cup in London.
