Istrina 2018 - HiTT Academy organises table tennis marathon for charity

HiTT4Istrina – Our annual appointment with charity


Istrina 2018 is here – so is HiTT Malta Table Tennis Academy’s annual appointment with charity. This year, we’ll be serving, spinning, chopping, blocking and smashing for 16 whole hours!

Sat 15 Dec: 16 Hr Non-stop Table Tennis Marathon

€11,000 to the Community Chest Fund over 4 years

This is the fifth time that HiTT Academy is holding table tennis events to collect funds for the Community Chest Fund. Last year, we managed to raise the amazing sum of €2,500.

Over the past 5 years, the HiTT family has donated a total of €11,000 to the Community Chest Fund. This achievement means a lot to us, since one of the main objectives of our Academy is to instil a sense of social responsibility in our students, so that they can be better human beings.

Our main fundraising event – the 16hr Marathon

Doors will be open from 8 in the morning till midnight. That’s 16 whole hours of non-stop table tennis action. Where? At St Albert the Great College, Old Theatre Street, Valletta of course, and the date to keep free is the 15th of December.

During the marathon, HiTT Academy students, their families and the general public can watch matches or  participate in fun competitions and activities. Tables will be available against a small donation. Play against friends, Academy players and coaches, or test your skills against our resident table tennis robot.

We’re also going to have a well-stocked tuck shop with home-made food, drinks and goodies supplied by sponsors and parents. Sales from this tuck shop go directly towards the fund.

The sum collected from these events will be presented to the President of Malta on 26th December 2018.
