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

ITTF, our table tennis fans and followers 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 styles.

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:
