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 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 campaigns of last week:
