50th Anniversary Of Ping Pong Diplomacy


Many leaders from the U.S. and China came together in Houston, Texas, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Ping Pong Diplomacy which reflects on peace and friendship through sports.


As the fourth largest city in America, we welcome the delegations and guests from over 90 countries to enjoy our city and Texan culture.


Ping Pong Diplomacy was born when the U.S. and China table tennis teams came together in 1971 and exchanged gifts and created positive dialogues and built friendships through the sport.


In Houston, the event promotion was led by the Chinese Civic Center and the Houston Sports Authority who co-sponsored a dinner to commemorate the historic occasion.


Today the U.S. and China are facing many challenges. In our relationship, we need to cooperate and work together for world peace.


Ping Pong Diplomacy is the spirit we all need to encompass: the bridge over the wall and peace over the wars.
