Table Tennis North (TTN) has been hard at work developing virtual opportunities to engage youth, athletes, coaches and sports organizations this winter. Today, TTN is proud to launch its 2021 Virtual Ping Pong Challenge, an online event for individuals of all ages to complete locally from April 12-16, 2021. 

“We are excited to offer this challenge to encourage new and continued participation in the sport of Table Tennis in the Northwest Territories through a safe avenue during these unprecedented times,” said Thorsten Gohl, Executive Director for Table Tennis North. “The 2021 Virtual Freestyle Ping Pong Challenge is designed to be a fun event for all ages and abilities!”

The event comprises of four challenges: 1) Ping-Pong Flip; 2) Balance Jump; 3) Wall hit; and 4) Hand switch. Participants will record themselves completing all of the four challenges within 30 seconds each and submit a video to Table Tennis North. Officials will assess the results and calculate scores. There will be prizes awarded to first and second place winners of each division.

The Challenge is open to individuals residing in the Northwest Territories in the following age categories: under 13, under 15; under 19; 20 and over. 

We are wishing you all the best with the competition Table Tennis North!!!
