Season's greetings and happy holidays! Thank you for your passion and your support in 2021. What a year it has been for the table tennis family!

🏓 The Americas hosted their first-ever World Table Tennis Championships
🏓 We went to Tokyo for the Olympics & Paralympics
🏓 We elected a new President
🏓 We celebrated the 50th anniversary of Ping Pong Diplomacy
🏓 World Table Tennis was successfully launched

We hope you will join us for even more unforgettable table tennis moments in 2022. But until then, let's end the year with a trip down memory lane…

Houston, we had a great time! The first-ever World Championships hosted in the Americas offered us a truly memorable week of top-class table tennis action. Watch the best moments now!

To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Ping Pong Diplomacy, two unprecedented Chinese-American pairs entered the Mixed Doubles event at the 2021 World Championships. Now led by the ITTF Foundation, the CSR branch of the ITTF Group, the Ping Pong Diplomacy programme aims to build diplomatic and friendly relations between nations and people and bring peace around the tables.

We waited one extra year, and it was worth it. This summer, Tokyo welcomed the whole table tennis family for the Olympic and Paralympic Games. History was made, and records were broken in Japan.

Petra Sörling was elected President of the International Table Tennis Federation. With a vision based on four pillars – ITTF family, governance, growth, and sustainability – and as the first-ever woman in this position, she will bring our sport into a new era.

The WTT Cup Finals became the new unmissable year-ending sport event! Singapore made history when it hosted the inaugural edition in December.

Successfully launched in 2021, WTT heralds a new era for professional table tennis. It has developed a modern and new event structure establishing a clear journey from Day 1 to World #1. With WTT Series, WTT Feeder Series and WTT Youth Series, next year will be full of action for players and fans. Download the new WTT app now on the Play Store or App Store now!
