Since ping pong is the official sport of China, the Confucius Institute at Wayne State University is happy to organize and host ping pong tournaments in southeastern Michigan.

On March 16, The Wayne State University Confucius Institute took part in the 1st Confucius Institute Table Tennis Cup st The University of Toledo. This day-long competition, sponsored by UT-CI, hosted teams ranging from UT, Toledo community and other universities. WSU-CI Table Tennis Team, represented by Zhipeng Liang, Cheng Fang and Ajayi Oluseyi Moses, won the third place in Division B ( the amateur division) after the whole day of playing eight singles and two doubles with other four strong teams. Congratulations!
