Season’s Greetings from ATTU President CAI Zhenhua
Dear table tennis friends,
We are now coming to the end of 2019 and at the threshold of 2020. Looking back to the past year, 2019 was prosperous for the Asian Table Tennis Union in many senses. The SSP 24th ITTF-Asian Table Tennis Championships Yogyakarta 2019 was hosted by the Indonesia Table Tennis Association in September. Japan Table Tennis Association staged the LION 32nd ITTF-ATTU Asian Cup Yokohama 2019 after hosting the same event in 2018. Mongolia Table Tennis Association brought the event of 25th Asian Junior & Cadet Table Tennis Championships to its home soil for the first time. Five regions in Asia staged their qualification events for 2019 AJCTTC respectively.
Besides ATTU-DHS Development Fund Plan in 2019, a new development program named ATTU Aim for the Stars was introduced for the benefit of our member associations. In Budapest in April this year, the development agreement was signed between ATTU and ITTF which will be implemented for 2019 and 2020 with a general plan for the development of table tennis in our continent. ATTU website started its online entry system for its authorized events and opened new media platforms to promote our sports.
I am very grateful for the tireless efforts from ATTU officials, from member associations and from all friends in table tennis family, thank you all for your hard work and support. I hereby send you my warmest seasonal greetings and best wishes in the upcoming year.
I wish you all have a fruitful and a happy 2020!
