World Table Tennis Day (WTTD) has been celebrated annually in April since 2015. It is the day we celebrate table tennis, as well as the universality and social inclusiveness the sport represents. Starting this year and moving forward, we will celebrate WTTD on 23 April, honouring Ivor Montagu, organiser of the first World Table Tennis Championships in 1926 and the founder and first president of the ITTF. WTTD celebrates the joy of playing table tennis for fun, bringing people together, focusing less on competition and more on participation and enjoyment.
“WTTD is a celebration of table tennis, on 23rd of April we share our passion, we bring more people to the table, and we share a message for a positive social change” - Leandro Olvech, ITTF Foundation Director
We want to thank you all for celebrating this day as our own day and for ensuring that Table Tennis is For All. For a Better Life. We are taking action to ensure that table tennis will remain in every house, every corner all around the world. Our mission is to keep the World Table Tennis Day legacy running for the future. Let's work together for a better, stronger and more sustainable tomorrow!
