African Youth Training Camp ends in Egypt

The African Youth Training Camp has concluded after an energizing seven days in Cairo, Egypt, connecting 55 enthusiastic players from across the continent in a celebration of table tennis. From 14 to 20 October 2023, this exceptional camp was made possible through a collaborative effort by the International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF), the African Table Tennis Federation (ATTF), the Chinese Table Tennis Association (CTTA), and the Egypt Table Tennis Federation (ETTF).

Participants went on a transformative journey, benefitting from intensive training, specialised guidance, and exposure to world-class playing styles. This comprehensive experience has sharpened the skills of these young athletes, preparing them for a significant presence on the global stage.

An important factor in this initiative’s success was Team China, well-known throughout the world for their table tennis prowess. For the young African players, Team China’s depth of experience and knowledge left a lasting impression.

For African talents, their involvement in the African Youth Training is revolutionary. With their abundance of expertise and mentorship, Team China has guided, mentored, and motivated young African players, strengthening their abilities, and fostering their potential.

The African Youth Camp stands as a testament to ITTF Development’s unwavering dedication to fostering long-term growth worldwide, ensuring the prosperous development of table tennis.

In perfect alignment with the ITTF’s strategic plan, which emphasizes collaboration with Member Associations, the aim of such initiatives is to establish an enduring legacy characterized by improved table tennis infrastructure, increased player opportunities, and a strengthened network of empowered coaches.

“I consider this to be a huge success and compelling evidence of the enduring solidarity within the world of table tennis.

“Before our eyes, we are witnessing the exchange of knowledge in sports among young players and their coaches, representing a record-breaking thirteen countries. What we have here is an exceptional developmental initiative, driven by a deep commitment to advancing the game of table tennis.

“This initiative is a testament to the dedication of the Chinese Table Tennis Association, in partnership with the ITTF Development program and the African Table Tennis Federation, to foster the growth of the sport.” – Mikael Andersson, ITTF Group Sports Director
