How many rubbers do you have? 2, 5, 50, or 500? What do you do with your used rubbers?
Don’t throw it away!
What about your used table tennis rubbers?
∎ Page Contents ∎
Hello, welcome back to PingSunday. I’m EmRatThich.
Today is the WTTD (World table tennis day). Everyone can contribute to this sport. You can also.
I want to promote a wonderful program, “Rubber For All”.
Rubber for All project
What is this project?
“Rubber For All” is the project of Ping Sans Frontieres (PSF).
I’m Marina, PSF communication manager. Nice to meet you!
Thank you very much for this message and for your support about « rubber for all ».
Here is the players that supports this project:
PSF – Ping Sans Frontieres
PSF is a french non-profit organization created in 2006 by Sarah Hanffou, a table tennis Olympian from team Cameroon, and has already interviewed more than 16 countries all over the world.
PSF’s goal is to develop table tennis as an educational tool worldwide but also to create an ecological and solidarity chain to build and redistribute sports equipment all over the world.
That’s why we decided to create the project « rubber for all », as we really want to give sports equipment a second life by redistributing them to PSF kids all over the world.
Don’t throw your rubber away
I have emailed the organization:
“Hello, Sarah and Marina,
I’m a table tennis coach in France. My viewers are mostly from the United States, France, German, Japan, Korea, etc.
I would like to make a video to present “Rubber for All”. Because I found that we as a player, often throw the old rubber away.
I would like that the players will send to your organization so we can help the children. “
The aim of « Rubber for all » is to collect as many rubbers as possible and then, redistribute them to kids all over the world.
The French Federation is helping us with our project and many french clubs are going to participate in this program (and many already do).
Boxed to get the used table tennis rubbers
Boxes have been created to enable clubs to put them on their locals so that players can put their old rubbers on them. But at the moment, boxes are only available in France.
Where to send the used rubbers?
Equipment can still be sent to this address from all over the world :
20 Rue de Romainville, 75019 Paris, France
But donations can also be distributed in many countries.
Why make a donation of worn out material?
Material for table tennis competitions is rather short-lived. Once used up for a competitor, this equipment may well be re-used for leisure or initiation practice.
Watch this video.
By donating your worn out equipment to PSF, you will allow the most underprivileged communities to discover table tennis and its benefits. You will give a second life to your equipment destined to be thrown away.
What type of material can you give?
– Table tennis equipment: balls, coating, wood, nets
– Sportswear: shorts, t-shirts, shoes, tracksuits
How can you send your donation?
by mail to our head office: Laurent HUYGHE – PING SANS FRONTIERES – 20 rue de Romainville – 75019 PARIS.
– Delivered by hand at our head office: : Laurent HUYGHE – PING SANS FRONTIERES – 20 rue de Romainville – 75019 PARIS
– Using Cocolis app
– By any other means: firstname.lastname@example.org
Some photos of the PSF activities
PSF has sent the used rubbers to many kids.
How many clubs support this project
More than 150 clubs have joined the process at the moment. Please find attached pictures of the box to collect rubbers.
Please find attached a map made by the French Federation of Table Tennis. You will see all clubs that are part of the project.
So now, you know what to do with your used table tennis rubbers.
See you! coach EmRatThich
