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 Jesi, Italy aims to celebrate World Table Tennis Day, a day of sport aiming to assemble and make playing together the highest number of teams from the town scenario of sport associations. The proposed friendly tournament offers the opportunity to each sport club to enter the competition with the junior table tennis teams from the local club, promoting table tennis to a broader audience of under 18 who already play sports. The list of sports involved in this initiative includes Soccer, Basketball, Taekwondo, Volleyball, Judo, Tennis, Cricket…All players must wear their official sport jersey, hoping to have the best colourful picture representing the variety of sports played in the town of Jesi.
In addition to this event, we are looking for a major engagement with the citizen and for this purpose, we are going to host a cross-generational tournament (parents/sons or daughters and grandparents/ grandchildren) and an exhibition with national and international top players. .Feel invited to join us, ITTF wants to make Table Tennis accessible for everyone – everywhere.
