Portugal takes European team champion title in his own country

Photo: Freitas converts the match point for Portugal against Timo Boll


2014 marks an un-expected turning-point at the European team championships in Lisboa: After six successive titles, Germany has to admit defeat against the host country Portugal in a heart-beating finale on 28 September. During the group phase, the team supported by TIBHAR nearly went out of the tournament; then came a sensational twist to the game of the Portuguese players who ended up defeating the great favorite with 3:1. In the course of the tournament, Marcos Freitas had to play one single only; in the end it is him who wins the decisive point and defeats Timo Boll in the final match with 11:9 in the fourth set.

This is Portugal’s first title at a European team championship and anyway the great sensation of the year. TIBHAR sponsored the tables with their Smash 28R tables–the necessary bit of luck?

Far away from Portugal, there are also changes going on for the long-established German company at home. TIBHAR is expanding its facilities and creating new jobs.
