   Table tennis in China

  • Table tennis is the part of the cultural heritage and No.1 people’s sport in the world’s largest country.
  • Players are built up consistently.
  • Success is planned.
  • Performance is supplied to demand.
  • Victory is programmed.
  • China has brought system and structure to the sport.
  • China has thus achieved great success, at the cost of the players.

   Table tennis in Europe

  • Table tennis has great potential in Germany and Europe.
  • Yet it faces a major problem, that of promoting young players.
  • We lack the systems and structures to discover and build up young talented players.
  • Financial problems prevent national teams going to the World Championship.
  • Existing funds are not deployed effectively due to a lack of know-how and structures.
  • Europe offers no attractive jobs for professional coaches.
  • Young coaches are not systematically trained.

We know what counts.
With your support we can make a difference!

We do not want to copy the Chinese system. The European table tennis scene needs role models, flagships, ambassadors. We need champions! The Liebherr Masters College recognised this in 2009 and has taken up the challenge to fill the gap permanently.

VISION

Top professional table tennis over a promotion scheme for talented young players.

Rainer Ihle (+ July 2013)

„A Bundesliga club that trains young talented players within its own ranks.“

Rainer Ihle devoted his life to table tennis and achieved great things. Under his aegis TTF Liebherr Ochsenhausen developed from a provincial club to a seat of excellence in European table tennis. A top club with a very special philosophy. An original approach that has earned worldwide recognition.
He was very successful in his commitment to professionalising the sport. He explored new avenues and introduced many innovations into the Bundesliga that are standard practice today. The Sparkassen TT Performance Centre in Ochsenhausen and thus the Liebherr Masters College was Rainer Ihle’s last achievement. Without him there would have been no centre.

The LMC Foundation for the promotion of talented young players in competitive sports aims to uphold and carry on his life work.

OUR SPONSORSHIP SYSTEM

When talent meets sponsors.

We need your help!

There is no shortage of sponsors for the top echelons of sport, however not for the effective promotion of talented young players. Scarcely any associations have concepts to improve the situation.

We have a strategy and the credentials. We have an effective training and education programme.

However, talented young players are often unable to pay for this holistic training.

Groups
