Official presentation of the Independence Shield

How we won the Independence Cup 2016


This year we opened the season in style by winning the very first edition of the Independence Cup, a brand new table tennis tournament organised by the Malta Table Tennis Association in collaboration with the Nationalist Party. Hon. David Agius and Dr. Alex Perici Calascione presented us with a commemorative shield at the end of the event.

During five intense and action-packed hours, teams from our table tennis academy competed against teams from MITTC in six different categories. These included Under 11, Under 13, Under 15, Under 18, Under 21 and Seniors. Both clubs won three categories each, however, HITT Academy won more games overall.

The event was held at the University Sports Hall in Tal-Qroqq under the watchful eyes of the Malta Table Tennis Association members who kept a live score during the event, monitoring the progress of the tournament and providing assistance to the participants.

The Malta Table Tennis Association were crucial in ensuring the smooth running of the tournament.

HiTT Academy is the largest table tennis club in Malta with over 100 registered members. We hold lessons for all age groups from 6 years and up, offering opportunities in local and international table tennis competitions, training camps and workshops. Learn more about us on or find us on Facebook.
