From David Purdum of ESPN:

The Sports Wagering Integrity Monitoring Association alerted New Jersey regulators on July 7 of match-fixing concerns regarding Ukrainian table tennis, according to the notice provided to sportsbooks by gaming enforcement and obtained by ESPN.

"While there is not yet any evidence that any match fixing occurred in New Jersey, due the nature of the alert, the Division is suspending approval for wagering on all table tennis events in the Ukraine, including but not limited to the Setka Cup, WIN Cup, and TT Cup," the notice states.

Purdum notes that hundreds of thousands of dollars were bet on table tennis events during the worldwide pandemic due to the limited offerings.

New Jersey is not alone.

From ESPN:

Following ESPN's report, the Indiana Gaming Commission suspended betting on any table tennis events not sanctioned by the sport's top governing bodies -- International Table Tennis Federation and European Table Tennis Union -- while Colorado, New Jersey and Nevada, among others, continued to allow wagering on leagues like Setka Cup.

As of late Thursday, many of the offshore sportsbooks had also pulled odds on table tennis.
