🇨🇮 🏓Ping Sans Frontières is currently in Ivory Coast as part of its mission with ITTF Foundation.
The team has visited the center where the the course will take place, has met the director of the center and has tested of the wood for the tables.
This course will show how to built table tennis tables in Ivory Coast with always the same goal in mind : making table tennis accessible to everyone.
Une visite des clubs ivoiriens de Koumassi et de la Sodemi a également été organisée.
Training sessions and tournaments that had been organized were a wonderful occasion for exchanging and sharing with these young players. It was also an opportunity to understand their needs, their dreams for the future and more generally, table tennis conditions on african territory.
We have been able to meet young motivated players who has to face the situation on the ground: lack of infrastructures, difficulties associated with the buying of equipments (rackets, tables, clothes). PSF is helping them thanks to the donations made by our partners that enable us to redistribute them to these kids so that they can grow through this sport they love.
Furthermore, we are planning to develop our brand TAKO in order to propose ping-pong tables 100% made in Ivory Coast. It will be a way to facilitate access to these equipments and at low prices.
The adventure goes on in Ivory Coast and we can’t wait to show you the progress, stay tuned!
