In light of the outbreak of COVID-19 in Japan over recent weeks, the International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF), Japan Table Tennis Association (JTTA) and Local Organising Committee (LOC) have agreed to the postponement of the 2020 ITTF World Tour Japan Open. The event had been scheduled to take place in Kitakyushu between 21 – 26 April 2020.
The decision was made with the health and safety of players, officials and fans as the top priority, whilst keeping the window open to host the event later in the year.
The ITTF, JTTA and LOC are closely monitoring the situation and further updates will be forthcoming when more information comes to hand.
An update on the ITTF World Tour Hong Kong and China Opens will be announced shortly.
