Frequently Asked questions

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. World Table Tennis Day (WTTD) celebrates the joy of playing table tennis for fun, bringing people together, focusing less on competition and more on participation and enjoyment.
