On Tuesday the 6th of April we at Table Tennis Ireland celebrated World Table Tennis Day. We hosted an online live session with 2 of our female players and coaches. We hosted the event in conjunction with the ITTF Foundation #FEMpowerment movement.
Sport Ireland recognises that sport can make an important contribution to economic and social cohesion and a more integrated society by using the potential of sport for social inclusion, integration and equal opportunities, whilst emphasising the total unacceptability of discrimination in any form.
Paralympics Ireland have launched a new campaign “Next Level”. Which will help support Ireland’s incredible Irish Paralympic Athletes, including our very own Colin Judge on the road to the Tokyo Paralympics and beyond as they bring human achievement to ‘The Next Level’.
