Auch wenn für einige Profis der Tischtennis Bundesliga (TTBL) die Vorbereitung auf die neue Spielzeit bereits begonnen hat, durfte nach einer langen und kraftraubenden Saison für viele ein ordentlicher Sommerurlaub nicht fehlen. Die einen zieht es in die Heimat, andere bereisen ferne Länder und Kontinente. Wir haben die Instagram-Accounts der Stars nach Impressionen durchstöbert.

Patrick Franziska

To recharge his batteries before the first DTTB training session of the new season, Patrick Franziska of 1. FC Saarbrücken TT enjoyed a few days in Marbella. However, he could not refrain from sports completely.

Benedikt Duda

Benedikt Duda spent his summer on the popular island of Bali, where his girlfriend Svenja is studying. Meanwhile, the everyday life has already caught up with the player of TTC Schwalbe Bergneustadt. Just like for Walther and Franziska, the DTTB training session has started for him earlier this week.

Hunor Szöcs

Assar's former teammate at SV Werder Bremen Hunor Szöcs has been in India – professionally to be exact. The Romanian was part of the second season of Ultimate Table Tennis, even if he did not play himself. A trip to the famous Taj Mahal was a must, though.
