Annual Report: How we spread solidarity through table tennis in 2019

Our first year at our new headquarters has been very productive: Not only did we expand staff-wise but boosted our missions on the field and in the office spreading “Solidarity through Table Tennis”.

Learn more about us – how we are organised from our Governing Board and our Board of Trustees to all our staff behind the scenes and right on the field guiding and promoting humanitarian projects worldwide, creating positive social change including projects focussing on women and girls, people with a disability, socially deprived people and refugees.

“Thanks to the establishment of the ITTF Foundation and our high investment in its growth, we can proudly state that our commitment in Social Responsibility is leading within the International Sports Federations.” Thomas Weikert, ITTF & ITTF Foundation President

Get to know our programmes and projects – how is it possible to use table tennis as an enabler for development and peace? How do we implement or support projects on the field? How can we empower them to serve as role models? And how do we use events such as the World Table Tennis Day to widen the positive social impact of our sport, attracting new players on a grassroots level and making table tennis more popular, universal and inclusive?

“The ITTF Foundation emerged from the social commitment within the ITTF that stems as far back as the Ping Pong Diplomacy in the ´70s or even earlier when the first ITTF President - Ivor Montagu - strived for solidarity by bringing the countries together. This is what makes us unique, compared to any other sporting foundations.” Leandro Olvech, ITTF Foundation Director
