National Table Tennis Day is a day for the whole family to come together, have fun, and promote all that is great about our sport. It is a nationally co-ordinated, locally delivered, promotional day on
Thursday July 16th, 2015.

Table tennis is a game that can be played anywhere, at any time, by anyone and we want to foster that concept by creating a dynamic mass participation day to engage budding ‘ping-pongers’ across the
country to run their own competitions and events during an explosive 24 hours of table tennis.

Table Tennis England introduced National Table Tennis Day for the first time in 2014 with huge success. Clubs, schools, businesses, players and fans rallied together to celebrate our sport with a series of
spectacular events, including open days, outdoor table events, fancy dress and Guinness World Record attempts.

The 2015 day has four main aims and objectives:
1) To engage a new market in sustained table tennis participation.
2) To celebrate the sport, current opportunities and its participants.
3) To raise the profile of table tennis and show its diversity.
4) To increase and improve table tennis stakeholder engagement.
