WORLD TABLE TENNIS DAY: 6 APRIL
Peace on the Table
Are there tensions between diverse groups in your community? Are there constant frictions between neighbours in your building? World Table Tennis Day (WTTD) is celebrated annually on April 6 since 2015, also marking the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace. It is the day we celebrate table tennis, as well as the universality and social inclusiveness the sport represents.
In line with the biennial celebration of the 50th anniversary of Ping Pong Diplomacy, WTTD 2022 focuses on using table tennis for peace-making and conflict resolutions. Sparked by the original event in the Japanese city of Nagoya in 1971, WTTD 2022 seeks to create friendships and build bridges between conflicted parties on both, the state and grassroots level.(Ref:ITTF foundation)
