MUMBAI: Star Sports has launched a unique marketing campaign to build a base for its maiden season of Ultimate Table Tennis(UTT) starting 13 July.

Star Sports has launched a promo of the campaign, planned around the central thought, which is: ‘See Champions, Be Champions’. Created by Star Sports' creative communications team, the channel has plans to shoot 3--4 more thematic films around the same idea.

The promo, which took two days to shoot, is featuring two of the well-known Indian paddlers -- Sanil Shetty and A Amalraj, who are playing for a point. Set in a room, the promo in which a man makes the ball float over air pressure of a hair dryer, and another hits the ball floating with a different ball -- depicting their interest in the game. So, they decide to watch a table-tennis game featuring the two paddlers.

Shetty and Amalraj are playing well, followed by a nice drop by Amalraj, but Shetty comes up with the unexpected shot getting the point to his tally. The promo concludes with the voiceover: ‘See Champions, Be Champions’.

Star Sports airing its first UTT TVC and video on Star Sports as well as on its Facebook page. The first edition of UTT, which will be under way till 30 July, will see some of the world’s best table-tennis players playing in different Indian cities. A total of 48 paddlers will be a part of UTT with an equal number of Indian & foreign players.

On the campaign, a Star Sports spokesperson told Indiantelevision.com: “The campaign and multiple renditions of the same creative thought will be used to build the awareness and heighten anticipation for the league. Table Tennis is a familiar sport in the country. However, this world-class sport is witnessed by only a few. The central thought of the campaign is to leverage the familiarity of table tennis, and showcase the sport in a new light. The campaign highlights the extraordinary skill which international players possess. The creative, therefore, is an invite to fans to check out this simple, familiar, enjoyable sport in a way we have not seen before. The focus is on the precision and skill in a familiar, ‘slice of life’ context.”

The six franchises playing in the series are -- Oilmax-Stag Yoddhas, Maharashtra United, RP-SG Mavericks, Dabang Smashers TTC, iProspect Challengers, BaySide Spinners TTC. Unlike other major sporting leagues being run in the country like IPL and ISL, UTT will have club-based franchises rather than city-based franchises.

“Ultimate Table Tennis rediscovers the fervor for the sport in a refreshing way. It aims at showcasing Table tennis as a skill sport and break the stereotype of being a recreational sport. Through the edgy concept and striking visuals, the film celebrates the proficiency and specialised skill of table tennis players, and inspires fans to enhance their skill level by witnessing the table tennis champs. More importantly,it gives fans a flavour of the dynamic, nail-biting action that they can expect from the upcoming world-class table tennis tournament. Primarily the target audience is everyone who has played or witnessed table tennis in their surroundings, the spokesperson added.
