Singapore Table Tennis Association
Singapore Table Tennis Association (STTA) is a National Sports Association affiliated to the Singapore National Olympic Council (SNOC) and Singapore Sports Council (SSC).
The STTA is committed to its mission of developing world class table tennis players by identifying, nurturing and motivating aspiring table-tennis talents to become the best that they could be. The emphasis on youth development at the STTA has never been greater and a key goal for STTA is to identify and groom talented athletes from a very young age.
In 2009, the STTA started the early introduction of table tennis to PAP Community Foundation (PCF) kindergartens. Currently, the STTA-PCF table tennis programme reaches out to over 1,000 promising children yearly.
In addition, the STTA offers learn to play programmes and organises tournaments aimed at getting more people into the sport. The People’s Association and STTA have also jointly set up the National Network of PAssion Table Tennis Clubs, a group of table tennis sports interest groups, to widen outreach and deepen engagement with residents through table tennis at the Community Clubs, Residents’ Committees Centres and Neighbourhood Committees.
On the international front, STTA is a member of the International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF), Commonwealth Table Tennis Federation (COMTAB), Asian Table Tennis Union (ATTU) and the South East Asia Table Tennis Association (SEATTA).
