The teams competed against each other in thrilling games. In the end, the Cologne DHM table tennis team prevailed and won first place, followed by the team from Bochum in second place. The second DHM table tennis team for Aachen (Aachen II) took third place in the preliminary round and, just like the Dortmund team in fourth place, unfortunately could not qualify for the intermediate round.

The first Aachen DHM table tennis team (Aachen I) performed differently in the preliminary round at the end of November in Göttingen. There they were able to secure second place and thus also qualify for the intermediate round in March and April. Mannheim took first place. The teams from Göttingen and Dortmund were in third and fourth place.

In May, the German University Championships will then take place in Tübingen. It will be exciting to see who will bring home the victory in the end.
