#TableTennisUnited Boosts Morale in the Next Generation Table Tennis Players

Since its launch in June 2020, the #TableTennisUnited Fund had supported over 118 initiatives globally. Albeit we have entered 2022 with the unfortunate news of Omicron, #TableTennisUnited Fund remains the silver lining to the Covid-19 crisis, sending help to the worldwide table tennis community thanks to 57 donors and the support of the ITTF Group.

Table tennis for younger players has been at the forefront of the negative impact of the pandemic. Regional Covid-19 regulations are often the last straw that paralyses the fragile eco-system table tennis development, especially in less developed regions, leaving the next generation players with no proper equipment or training opportunities, With the future of our favourite sport at heart, #TableTennisUnited Fund ensures to secure training opportunity for those who loves to play, to keep the morale high and the spirits up even during the pandemic.


Honduras Table Tennis Federation  

Like all ITTF Member Associations, the Honduras Table Tennis Federation is dedicated to promoting table tennis across the nation but has faced severe problems due to Covid-19. Training equipment for young players was scarce and the morale was running low. With the support of #TableTennisUnited Fund, U11 and U13 national team players have received new rackets that allow more efficiency in training with better results.

It was amazing to see the smile on the faces of our young players as they felt the difference of playing with a new blade and rubber that helps them improve their techniques. - The trainer of the Honduras National team.


In addition to the professional players, young talents across the country have also benefited from the #TableTennisUnited Fund.

The support we received from #TableTennisUnited Fund also went to Honduran players such as La Esperanza, San Pedro Sula, Comayagua, and Tegucigalpa. We are proud to have been part of the table tennis family and to know that the ITTF Group would always have our back. - Leonel Godoy, President of the Honduras Table Tennis Federation.


Biratnagar TTC

Located in Nepal, Biratnagar TTC promotes grassroots table tennis through its six table tennis clubs across the country. The club draws extra effort in seeding young female players, FEMpowerment while trying to remain a stress outlet for players during the global pandemic.

Biratnagar TTC has lost its momentum briefly due to Covid-19 when all six clubs had to stop with the training session. With equipment sponsored by #TableTennisUnited Fund, we are happy to share that the players can once again train in their beloved clubs.

The support of #TableTennisUnited Fund was instrumental and just in time. A big thank you to the ITTF Group for helping us resume training here at the Biratnagar TTC, especially for our young table tennis enthusiasts. – Biken Thapa, Biratnagar TTC.

Not only has #TableTennisUnited Fund helped bring back the training in six Biratnagar clubs, but Biratnagar TTC has also extended the support to the local Birat Deaf School, donating a table tennis table and equipment to promote the sport among over 200 students with hearing impairment.
