World Table Tennis for Health Festival

What is the World Table Tennis for Health Festival (WTT4HF)?

From November 1-5, the Mediterranean island of Crete will host World Parkinson’s Table Tennis Championships, along with the inaugural World Alzheimer’s Table Tennis Championships and World Table Tennis for Health Congress. Bringing these events together will launch the inaugural World Table Tennis for Health Festival.

The WTT4H Festival grew from the expansion of the growing enthusiasm of the World Parkinson’s Table Tennis Championships and the chance to show the kind of benefits practicing sport can have on other neurological disorders.

The event will promote the positive benefits of playing table tennis on health in general, not only on people with the mentioned diseases, but also for sickness prevention, staying active in general, as part of its larger remit and investment from the ITTF Group and Foundation.
