Gabriel Grixti, Conrad Puli, Sean Debono and Isaac Grixti will be playing in the Italian National League of table tennis for season 2021/22. This amazing news sets a new era for HiTT Academy, as we see our top players venture offshore on a completely new experience.
All four HiTT players have played countless international competitions, but this is their first time playing in a foreign league. They trained non-stop throughout summer, with morning and evening sessions every day of the week. Their hard work has paid off as they stormed through their trials with their respective teams.
The possibility for our players and other Maltese table tennis players from other academies to play in the Italian League was made possible after an agreement between the Malta Table Tennis Association (MTTA) and Federazione Italiana Tennis Tavolo (FITET). This agreement made it possible for players to take part in both the Malta National League and the Italian National League at the same time.
