Table tennis for everyone, everywhere!

The ITTF Foundation will mark 6 April with two social projects and a main event.

How will you be celebrating on the day?

We invite table tennis enthusiasts from all around the world to celebrate our sport and share our passion with others. The ITTF Foundation celebrates one main event in rural and urban Uganda, together with two social projects using table tennis to lower school dropout rates and including children with a disability. Our not for profit organisation is also present at the EU Sport Forum on 8 April with a table tennis tournament for fun with the forum participants.

What does 6 April mean to you?

We use 6 April to exposure the popularity, universality and inclusiveness of table tennis. Our guiding slogan for April 6 is “Table Tennis for Everyone, Everywhere!”. The motto is lived day by day in many projects who are working on the field of table tennis for development and peace and April 6 is a perfect opportunity to show the world-wide commitment from table tennis lovers all around the world, widen the community and motivate others to follow.
