ITTF Foundation: Solidarity through Table Tennis

ITTF Foundation: Solidarity through Table Tennis


All the ITTF has a long history working in sport for development and social projects. During the last 15 years we have been doing about 30 projects, with an impact on around a quarter million people, all around the world. As a result, the ITTF took the decision to create the ITTF Foundation. Our main motto will be “Solidarity through Table Tennis”. “Solidarity through Table Tennis” means that it’s not just charity, we are not just funding projects, we are implementing them ourselves. And the role of the Foundation will be to involve all the table tennis family. We want to involve the elite athletes, we want to involve the manufacturers of table tennis products and the table tennis fans. That means for us solidarity. We will take care mainly of the minority groups and we will try to work on integration through table tennis, but not only the children, also for the elderly, for people with disability, refugees, immigrants, LGBT. We want to use table tennis to unite. We have many activities that can support and involve many youths to be not involved in the conflict. It’s always the goal from ITTF to do something better through sport. Now we start with the work in the foundation, more solidarity, more projects and more table tennis for development. I have learnt that people all make changes, and not only the big political leaders, even a simple person can make a change in this world!
