Female table tennis players, coaches, officials and administrators are being urged to respond to a survey to help the European Table Tennis Union (ETTU) increase participation in the sport.

The ETTU recently joined a Europe-wide Erasmus+ project on gender equality, which aims to increase the participation of women in all aspects of competitive sport.

Ultimately, the project seeks to build an online tool that can educate national and regional associations, clubs, and other stakeholders about gender equality issues in sports.

The first step is to collect as much data as possible from the women involved in sports, via an online survey.

The survey aims to understand the individual and structural factors hindering or enhancing women’s equal participation in competitive sport and federation licensed sports in particular.

It is to be answered by women who are or were involved in competitive sport as athletes, volunteers, coaches, technical officials and administrators.

The results of the survey will be used to create campaign strategies and e-learning material to support sport federations to increase the participation of women in different roles in sport.

The survey is anonymous, and the results will be kept confidential, so please answer as honestly as possible, as this will help identify the challenges faced by women in sports.
