Écrit par Euradio sur 4 juillet 2022
From the 28th of June to the 3rd of July, Nantes hosted the 11th edition of the table football world cup. If you think this is just a bar game for middle-aged men, this competition will surprise you…
1000 players from 45 countries gathered in Nantes with one objective: win the 11th edition of the table football world cup.
An authentic sport that requires both physical and mental strengths. An extensive international competition that brings together people from different contexts. An occasion to break the stereotype of the game for middle-aged men in bars. This was the atmosphere of the table football world cup that took place in Nantes from the 28th of June to the 3rd of July 2022.
“I have in the past had some men who have assumed that I can’t play, but I don’t mind that because the table speaks. When I play, then they can understand that gender doesn’t matter.” Emily Knox from the UK national team.
