Being social doesn’t have to be in person! Amazing technology is 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:
This was to be the week of the 2020 ITTF World Tour Japan Open and in order to keep the fans engaged, itTV and our social media channels have been playing complete matches from Japan Open tournaments of previous years.
From Sun Yingsha’s run to the title, all the way to Xu Xin’s triple crown – fans are now being asked to vote for their favourite male and female athlete performances right here!
It’s crazy to think that we have already spent a whole year since the action-packed and thrilling sporting madness that was the Liebherr 2019 World Table Tennis Championships in Budapest!
Fans are being teleported to the best of the WTTC tournament, with matches such as the nail-biter between France’s Simon Gauzy and China’s Xu Xin. Do you remember how this one turned out?
World’s Longest Rally
You made this happen! Our fans and followers from around the world gathered together – while being socially distant, of course – and managed to create the world’s longest ever table tennis rally!
