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.
Here’s our top Hashtag campaigns of last week:
My ITTF Match
Launched this week, the #MyITTFmatch campaign was a straight games win with the fans! We asked our social media followers which classic past match they wanted to watch the most – and we were not disappointed with the response! Playing last month’s epic battle between England’s Liam Pitchford versus the world no.1 from China, Xu Xin it was certainly a pick we would have gone for too!

Flatten The Curve
Perhaps the most important task we all have right now is doing our bit in stopping the spread of COVID-19. We are all in this together and we all play a part in ensuring the safety of one another. In order to understand the real-time effect of ‘Social Distancing’ in helping #FlattenTheCurve, here is a video which resonates with any sports-fan:
Stay Active, Stay Home
We all love hearing from our favourite athletes. They helped TTF prepare an important message about the task we have at hand. It’s a match for which all the top players are banding together to win – and so can you! All you need to do is #StayHome and do not forget to #StayActive!
World Siblings Day
When you are international athletes and are saving lives by staying home, how do you celebrate a #HappySiblingsDay? By having an intense but #SafeTableTennis match of course! Watch the Yoshimura brothers – Maharu and Kazuhiro – take on each other with some hilarious shots!
