ACY Securities congratulates ACY NSW Table Tennis Open Championships winners

Rick Steves

ACY Securities has sponsored the ACY NSW Table Tennis Open Championships held at Sydney Olympic Park Sports Halls from 19th –20th November 2022.

The ASIC-regulated multi-asset CFD broker has signed a wider two-year sponsorship agreement with Table Tennis New South Wales (TTNSW) earlier this year here. The deal is in line with ACY’s continued support for local and national cultural events, and sporting and community organizations.

As part of the agreement, TTNSW players will be sporting uniforms with the ACY logo during State Junior competitions and other events in a year that TTNSW celebrates the 120th anniversary of organized Table Tennis in New South Wales.

Ashley Jessen, Chief Operations Officer at ACY Securities, said: “It was a true privilege to award the NSW State Champions for the Open Men’s, Women’s, and Under 21 titles. The talent of all players was incredible, and I was fortunate enough to watch both the Men and Women’s grand finals. When you watch the best of the best play, you begin to realise the immense skill and talent of the players, not to mention the dedication to honing those skills over 10+ years.”

“Quite the historic time to be crowned champion”

All NSW Open champions had to overcome a series of intense matches leading up to the Grand Final, including 3 rounds, which were a best of 7 eliminations.

The Grand Final saw the tension build, with their coaches and support crew cheering on for each
point won. At this level, nothing is left to chance, as each competitor threw everything they had at it.

In the women’s final, it was Tracy Feng overcoming Chermaine Chen 4 to 1 in an extremely close
series of games. In the men’s final, TA Yeo claimed the victory in a dominating display of power table tennis over Daiki Shimojo, who is one of the more consistent players on tour.

“It was great to hear the feedback from the winners and their support team, who were thankful for the increase in prize money provided by ACY, recognizing their wins. And it was quite the historic time to be crowned champion, as Table Tennis NSW celebrates its 120th year, playing since 1902″, said Jessen.

The Game of Chess Continues – OPEC, China and the Oil Market

Over the past decade, the US has been complaining about the amount of power which the BRIC group, and specifically China, has on the global economy. BRIC stands for Brazil, Russia, India and China; these were the world’s fastest growing economies. Only in the past 10 months, the US has turned their attention toward OPEC due to the prices of fuel. Nevertheless, China seems to have a strong influence even over the price of crude oil.
