HITT ACADEMY MALTA IN AID OF ISTRINA 2016

For the third consecutive year, HiTT Academy Malta is organizing a fund raising 30-hour table tennis marathon in aid of the Malta Community Chest Fund.

The event will be held at St. Albert’s College in Valletta between Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th of December.

Building on the success of the previous two editions, the number one table tennis club in Malta is determined to collect an even larger sum with a better and bigger event.

The amount presented to the Malta Community Chest Fund last year was of €2,200, that is €600 more than that collected in 2014. In a run-up to this year’s marathon, HiTT Academy Malta already organised two fundraising events on Friday 25th November.

The first one was a table tennis demonstration held at Savio College. The second event was a Davis-Cup-style tournament that started at 6.00 pm and went on until midnight. These two events already contributed nearly €500 to this year’s fundraising.

During the marathon various table tennis activities are held for members and visitors alike.

A number of tables will be always available and enthusiasts and newcomers can all book a time slot to try their skills at one of the most popular games in the world.

Activities include several tournaments where one can watch the academy players battling it out on Saturday, a parent-child competition on Sunday, fun games for everyone, a competition for veteran players and coaching sessions by the academy’s coaches for newcomers.

A variety of food, donated by helpers and sponsors, will be available for sale, with all proceeds going to the fund.

"Being able to bring so much people together for such a good cause gives me a wonderful feeling. We work hard all year round and this will be no exception. This is a special event, to which we commit all our hearts and efforts," said Mario Genovese, Head Coach of HiTT Academy Malta.

"Organising such an event takes a lot of time and careful planning, and all of this wouldn't be possible without the help of many people. I wish to thank them all for their support and for the time dedicated towards this just cause."

Now into its third consecutive year, the 2016 HiTT Academy Malta Table Tennis Marathon will take place over the weekend of 17th and 18th December at St. Albert’s College, Archbishop Street, Valletta.

People are encouraged to join the fun and help with their donations.
