ITTF - World Table Tennis Day in Munich, Germany
06 April 2017 00:00
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 Munich, Germany aims to celebrate World Table Tennis Day: A lot of young people with or without disabilities are playing table tennis together, experience the fascination of the sport in a creative way with different types of tables and rackets.
We also would like to show that table tennis is a sport that knows no barriers and disabilities, that the table tennis experience is possible despite physical or mental impairment. Moreover the kids learn how to deal with handicapped pupils and remove fear of contact. Also the kids even can try wheelchair table tennis by themselves. In general, the focus is on playing and experiencing together.
Feel invited to join us, ITTF wants to make Table Tennis accessible for everyone – everywhere.
