The ITTF and WTT have released the official media guide for the 2021 ITTF World Table Tennis Championships with less than a week to go until the opening of the event, held in Houston, Texas.
From 23-29 November, the world’s best players will face each other at George R. Brown Convention Center. Adopting a revamped and expanded format for the first time, the flagship event will feature 128 players in singles (Men and Women) and 64 pairs in each of the doubles competitions (Men Doubles, Women Doubles, Mixed Doubles) competing in a straight knockout format.
This is the first time the ITTF World Table Tennis Championships Finals takes place in America and this is the first time since 1939 it takes place out of Asia or Europe.
Past champions, current competitors, playing system, schedules and much more… The 2021 ITTF World Table Tennis Championships media guide includes everything media reporting from Houston and beyond need to know about the sport’s greatest annual showpiece.
