Belize Table Tennis Association       

"Developing the sport of table tennis"

About Us

The Belize Table Tennis Association was established in 2008 by founding member Arturo Tux Vasquez after being invited to the Central American Veterans Championships in El Salvador in September of 2007. This sparked the cooperation between the regional table tennis bodies as well as the International Table Tennis Federation, whose objective at the time was to penetrate the globe and reach it's arms into every corner by establishing associations in every country. Through this initiative Arturo Vasquez began the work to get an association up and running within Belize in no time. Today we have amassed a membership of over 200 members, established 13 sponsored tournaments each year, a ranking system for players which is regularly updated and posted on our site, a training center for junior athletes, complete with national teams which regularly participate in regional competitions, scholarship programs for junior athletes, have hosted regional events, and much more. We are proud of what we have been able to achieve thus far, and we are looking forward to what our team will be able to achieve as we push forward. We welcome you to become a part of the initiative.
