|For those who plan on celebrating digitally:
Organising digital events that can be shared with the whole community can be challenging. But going digital does not mean that they can’t be engaging and inclusive! From breaking a sweat to using the day to learn something new, this list will provide ideas for every situation:
This can be an interactive way of acquiring new techniques or refining your table tennis skills! By hiring a female coach or a mixed coaching team, you can support FEMpowerment through table tennis. Check out the weekly Coaching webinars
from the ITTF High Performance & Development to get inspired to make your own!
Digital events do not have to stand for laziness. Get moving by joining or conducting a virtual (table tennis) workout to stay fit! To make them more interactive, let some of your participants suggest and demonstrate warm‑up or cool‑down exercises.
Seize the opportunity and broaden the horizon of your participants. Invite guest speakers or partner up with an NGO related to gender equality and female empowerment to promote this year’s WTTD theme even further. Or give the floor to workshops that enhance personal skills, so everybody can learn something useful for the future!
Who performs the best trick? Who can bounce the ball the longest while switching between back and forehand or sitting down and standing up again? Challenge your team, club, coach or players by starting a challenge and compete online with others. Or go beyond WTTD itself and join a challenge in which you must nominate another team or person from another country or territory – this way, the ball will be passed on around the world!
Get your game on – don’t let a screen stop you! Connect with your friends and table tennis family and keep playing simultaneously with the help of technology.
We also organise an online event open for everyone on 6 April, and you are welcome to participate! And even before WTTD itself, you can join our conference on 8 March from 3 to 4.30 pm (CET), the International Women’s Day, to learn more about gender equality and FEMpowerment through sport! More details about the events will follow.
