The U Mumba family has extended to include table tennis to their sporting family, and so U Mumba TT becomes one of the new teams in the Ultimate Table Tennis Season 3. The franchise snapped up Soumyadeep Roy and Jiaqi Zheng at the coach draft as their Indian and foreign coaches respectively. The all-new franchise has roped in Manav Thakkar as their captain. The 19-year-old young paddler created history by becoming the first Indian to be crowned World No 1 in the sport in the under-18 category last year. He has won many laurels already and has played in UTT before but he will be playing in U Mumba for the first time. Manav feels that playing higher-ranked players in UTT takes the fear factor out of his game. Manav is excited to meet his U Mumba teammates and feels that he will try to improve the game and play better than before.
