In difficult times, it is our will to come together that makes us stronger.

With the arrival of April Fool's Day, ITTF and fans of table tennis have been making best of our time indoors to stay social and keep everyone's spirits up! Not only are we doing our part to keep everyone safe, but also joining our followers in staying active in creative manners!

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!
