One of the major obstacles to table tennis practise is the absence of material available, and the difficulty to acquire tables for local organisations. A local production allows an almost neutral ecological print, while a worldwide shipping of tables has an ecological impact.
After developing a manual of how to build 5 different models of handcrafted tables, the goal is now to create a pedagogical content that enables us to provide theoretical knowledge and a practical workshop in building handcrafted tables that will be given over a 5 to 7 days period.
To bring self-sustainability to field projects, national associations, clubs, and others by giving them the chance to produce their own tables and to generate their own income.

One of the main barriers to develop table tennis world-wide, especially in developing countries, is the lack of equipment at affordable prices due to the lack of sporting shops, the long and expensive process to import tables from abroad involving customs, transportation to the end destination or even the high cost of the tables compared to the resources available for the local clubs.
