Being social doesn’t have to be in person! Amazing technology in our hands today, players, fans and the ITTF across social media have engaged in fun activities to keep everyone busy expressing their love for this amazing sport.
It has become increasingly important to keep everyone involved at such a difficult time and we at ITTF are doing our bit to help keep our fans happy and engage them no matter where they are in the world!
Here’s our top Hashtag campaigns of last week:
Table Tennis United
#TableTennisUnited: We asked our huge table tennis community to join us for some #WeekendFUN by creating the world’s craziest longest table tennis online rally to celebrate a very special 2020 World Table Tennis at Home Day.
Stay At Home With TT
#StayAtHomeWithTT: It has been very important to allow everyone at home to see their heroes as people just like them – who are following the necessary advice of the health authorities and leading the line – albeit in a funny fashion! Here’s lesson for us all to play #SafeTableTennis at home Danish style by Peter Rosenmeier!
#TTMemes: It was only so long we could stay away from everyone’s favourite way to engage with each other online! The ITTF Social media team have joined the meme-culture and here to keep everyone smiling, while also bringing together our table tennis community in hard times.
TT for Health
#TT4Health: Finally, its very important to remember that we are all in this together and that means reminding everyone that we must follow the WHO guidelines to best prevent the spread of COVID-19. Make sure you watch this video to correct your hand-washing style!
Don’t be fooled!
In a special April Fools’ Day campaign, the ITTF social team sought out to check the fans knowledge about their favorite players over Instagram and Facebook! In the ten fun facts shared by our team, fans were asked about the titles of Chen Meng, and even building up to the eye-catching match between Jan-Ove Waldner and Tomokazu Harimoto – that never happened!
Keeping the fans laughing, it was a successful little venture with which we wished everyone a Happy April Fools’ Day!
