Quite simply, whilst competition is the very essence of sport, enjoyment and a fun are at the heart of the matter; just as in Denver and Varberg, in Rome everyone can compete, there are no restrictions.
Equally playing restrictions have been removed, for TTX rackets have no artificial covering; there are no limiting rules for serving, just hit the ball, make it bounce once at your side of the table and then hop over the net, you are all set. Each match can be as many odd numbered games as you wish, each game being timed to two minutes.
European Week of Sport
The Roma Ping Pong Fest is one of the events of the “European Week of Sport”, a campaign to promote activity where inactivity thanks to modern day technology has become the increasing norm.
An enjoyable day beckons in the Italian capital city, the TTX event will be a major part of an occasion that involves the performing arts, street artists, games and music.
Moreover, the event supports the “Città della Speranza” Foundation and research into Paediatric Oncoematology, research that covers many psychological and social aspects, linked to the difficult experiences of having a tumor during childhood or adolescence
