We are excited to announce that last Tuesday February 15, 2022, we successfully held our first Gender Equity webinar. One of many planned on a monthly basis. The Gender equity committee is working to help and support Table Tennis for girls and women in all aspects of the sport: from leaders, to officials and coaches and players. You can learn more about the Gender Equity plan here. 

Why organize webinars about Gender Equity? Our sport is not well known and often not seen here as a real sport, showing a positive image of the sport, especially for girls and increasing the presence of women in table tennis are the main goals of these webinars. Plus, through these moments we want to introduce you to some amazing leaders, coaches, officials and athletes.

The firs webinar was held on Tuesday February 15th, 2022 and highlighted 3 amazing national female athletes: Ivy Liao from British Columbia, Sophie Gauthier from Québec and May Tong from Ontario. These very successful athletes have been very generous to share their experiences on teaching Aerobic Table Tennis virtually and the importance of inclusion in our sport and what it means to them. What an amazing and fun time we had with them. 

You can still watch their webinar here: https://www.facebook.com/tabletenniscanada/videos/674850456982476

Join us on March 8th, 2022 for our next webinar with Mariann Domonkos, Julia Charbonneau and Becky McKnight at 7 pm ET.
