The countdown to World Table Tennis Day 2020 has begun! Last year’s edition was a total success with 922 events in 107 countries reaching more than 700,000 people – can we set a new record in 2020? Preparations are already in full swing.

The power of World Table Tennis Day is to make Table Tennis accessible for ALL.

The ITTF Foundation is inviting you to join the annual celebration of table tennis on 6th April 2020, as our sport is suited for everyone, everywhere! The focus is less on excellence, more on inclusion, less on competition, more on fun and positive social outcomes.

The key is to motivate more and more people to promote solidarity through table tennis in your community and share the passion with ALL.

The upcoming World Table Tennis Day will be about the environment. Of course, climate change is an urgent matter, and while there will be a focus on the ecological environment, World Table Tennis Day will also deal with the positive impact that our sport can have on the social environment as well.

As in previous years, the ITTF Foundation will be sending out a newsletter to all those interested in order to stay up to date. You can subscribe here to receive the best tips and make the most of your event.

The ITTF Foundation has a new website, but the old one is still available in nine languages: Arabic, Chinese, English, French, German, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Japanese. Like last year, a toolkit and promotional package in these nine languages can be accessed via the Download section of the old website. Different logo templates are available and can be adjusted to your needs, such as for training shirts, stickers and banners. If your language is not available, please send an email to this address.

So, with only a few months to go until World Table Tennis Day 2020, we want to invite experienced and new event organisers to join the celebration and make our sport even more popular, universal and inclusive.

To get inspired, watch the World Table Tennis Day 2019 celebrations below. So, the countdown has begun – do not hesitate to register your event!
