ITTF Foundation is a foundation of the International Table Tennis Federation, which was launched on April 6th, at the Za’atari Refugee Camp located in the Jordan border with Syria.
The idea of ITTF Foundation was conceived in the middle of 2017 but this road began about 20 years ago for people of ITTF Development Programme. Since its beginnings in 1999 this department has worked for the development of Table Tennis, but has also played an important role in the social responsibility of ITTF promoting the sport under three principles: popular, universal and inclusive.
Now the International Table Tennis Federation decided to divide this area in Development of Table Tennis and Table Tennis for Development which will be carried out by ITTF Foundation. The Foundation was constituted by ITTF President Thomas Weikert on Saturday 24th February.
Projects and Programs under ITTF Foundation’s umbrella are: Olympic Bridge, Nittaku Dream Building, Table Tennis for NepALL and TT4ALL ( World Table Tennis Day).
