Following its motto “Breaking Down Barriers with Table Tennis”, ITTF firmly believes that Table Tennis is not only a matter of competition: it is also a vehicle for positive social change, a healthy worthwhile use of leisure time, an opportunity to bring people together and an excellent tool for social inclusion & social cohesion. Table Tennis has a unique value where people from different ages, gender, skills or physical condition can play together. It is a sport for life and it’s FUN!
In this sense, World Table Tennis Day activities are organized in Bendigo. The event will be held in conjunction with the 2016 ITTF-Oceania Olympic Qualification Tournament, the activity will take place in Rosalind Park as part of the Bendigo Easter Festival, which sees 20,000+ people taking part in the activities throughout the city centre. The aim is to provide people with a fun introduction to table tennis, and also provide guidance on how they can watch the Olympic Qualification Tournament, which will take place just 500m away from the Bendigo Easter Festival.
Feel invited to join us, ITTF wants to make Table Tennis accessible for everyone – everywhere.
