Since 2012, Italian Table Tennis Federation (FITET) and Garda Trentino spa have been teaming up to organize events on the Northern side of Garda Lake to enhance a sport tradition linked to table tennis into an area whose strong vocation in outdoor disciplines, such us biking, sailing, climbing, hiking is a must.

Well known as one of the most haunted Italian destinations by tourists, Riva del Garda upheld over the years thousands of table tennis players and fans appreciating hospitality, top-class services and organizational skills. Ronald Kramer, European Table Tennis Union Chairman, qualified the 57th European Table Tennis Youth Championships as “the best event ever held in Europe in table tennis youth competitions”.

Driven by this success , on April 2016 in Kuala Lumpur Garda Trentino submitted its bid to host the World Junior Championships thanks to the FITET support, and this goal has been achieved.

The best is yet to come.
