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 forsocial 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 Ben Guerdane to celebrate the World Table Tennis Day
under the theme "Combating terrorism with Table Tennis' Balls" in Ben
Guerdane, at the south-east of Tunisia. This is the last major city before the
border between Libya and Tunisia.
This event represents the best way to restore normal life in the city who is trying to bring healing, one month after the unprecedented terrorist attacks, unprecedented in scale, attributed to the ISIS, against security institutions and civilians, the March 7th, 2016.
Feel invited to join us, ITTF wants to make Table Tennis accessible for everyone – everywhere.
