Italian Table Tennis Federation

History of FITET

Costitution

The first national organisation, the Italian Federation of Table Tennis (FITeT), was established on 15 November 1945 in Genoa, thanks to the work of Constante Canepa and Adolfo Bandettini. Their effort was not followed up. In 1947, on the initiative of Gino Mario Cini - Secretary of Federtennis at that time - the Italian Table Tennis Group (GITeT) was founded in Livorno, which CONI (Italian National Olympic Committee) recognised as an organisation affiliated to the FIT (Italian Tennis Federation). Cini himself was appointed president. The first Meeting of the Organisation was held in Livorno on 17/18 December 1960 and elected Philip Dragotto as president. Subsequently, on 22 February 1969, the name was changed to the Italian Table Tennis Federation (FITeT). On 19 December 1974, CONI recognised the Federation as a supporting member and official recognition on 22 February 1979.

Denomination

From 1945 to 1969, Gruppo Italiano Tennis Tavolo (GITeT or “Italian Table Tennis Group”); from 1969 to the present, Federazione Italiana Tennis Tavolo [more recently contracted to Tennistavolo] (FITeT or “Italian Table Tennis Federation”).
