The Team behind TT-SCOUTING

TT-SCOUTING gives young table tennis talents from South America the chance to improve their sportive and personal skills, in Europe and under professional conditions, what´s usually not possible in the home countries of the players.

The project started in 2014 in cooperation between Marc Wannagat (sports manager & table tennis coach) and the Peruvian no. 1 coach Alan Blas in supporting the talented player Ivan Santivanez from Huancayo (Peru).


Since the beginning of TT-SCOUTING we built up a small network of players, clubs and training centers. Additionally we managed to convince partners to join the team which are not in daily contact with table tennis. They cooperate with us and support the project with their expertise.

Our core team consists of:


Marc Wannagat
Project Manager

Thomas Klaiber

Project Manager

Arturo Santivañez
Country Manager Latin America

Our philosophy

Together with our partners we are working hard for the development of the talents as sportsman and as a person. We create an environment with perfect conditions for table tennis, but also for the personal and social education. For example: attending a language institute, gaining a secondary education, entering into a university or starting an apprenticeship.
