The first week, the brothers Elias and Mikael Ymer made it to the tennis court.
During the weekend that passed, the viewers were invited to top matches in table tennis on both the women's and men's side.
And now on Sunday, SVT's special initiative "The Challenger Meeting" continues. This time, the paddle is the focus, and this is the first time SVT broadcasts the popular sport.
The transmission time is 15.00-17.55 in SVT1 and SVT Play. Chris Härenstam comments and brings guest expert Andréas Johansson, one of Sweden's best paddle players and coaches.
In the first match, experienced Åsa Eriksson and Billie Gajic challenge the Swedish champions Antonette Andersson and Baharak Soleymani. After that, WPT wager Calle Knutsson and Daniel Windahl will meet the Swedish champions Pierre Bonfré and Viktor Stjern.

The matches are played in the Padel Arena Frihamnen in Gothenburg. There are three sets with Golden Point and supertiebreak (to ten) at the crucial set.
Åsa Edlund Jönsson, sports director at SVT, tells in this post from May 7 about the special initiative "The Challenge Meeting" and why SVT is broadcasting live sports again.
- We know that many TV viewers long for live sports and a moment of entertainment and relaxation in a tough everyday life. Together with the sport, we also want to test new formats and production arrangements in order to find a way forward in an everyday life that will unfortunately look very different for a long time to come, says Åsa Edlund Jönsson.
