ITTF Foundation - Our Mission

We are a not for profit organisation founded by the International Table Tennis Federation in 2018 under German law. We believe in the power of sport to deliver sustainable social change. Our primarily aim is to promote the use of Table Tennis for development and peace.


Table tennis is an ideal sport to attract people of all ages, irrespective of gender, cultural, social background or physical ability. It is a very healthy leisure activity with multiple benefits, both for physical and mental health. At the same time it is fun.

At the ITTF FOUNDATION we use these characteristics, not only to promote our sport and its benefits to a broad and different public, also to foster development through the sport; this means using the sport as a method of attracting more people to play and working with them on different topics to improve their daily life.
