International Veterans Table Tennis Society (IVTTS)   requested to postpone the World Veterans Table Tennis Championships 2020 in Bordeaux/ France (WVC)

 

The global drama with the Corona virus has already led to the cancellation of many national and international sport events in all affected countries.

Also from this point of view it is no longer acceptable neither the organizer of  WVC, Swaythling Club International, the ITTF, the French Table Tennis Federation (FFTT)  nor the Commission responsible for the implementation of the WVC at Bordeaux has not commented on whether the WVC will take place or be postponed up to now.

The President of the IVTTS, Mr. Peter Bakker / Netherlands, therefore requested on behalf of the IVTTS to those responsible representatives to postpone the WVC  immediately.
