The International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) has announced today that the Chengdu 2022 World Team Table Tennis Championships have been rescheduled to 30 September – 9 October 2022.
Given the continued spread of the Omicron COVID-19 variant and following close consultation with the Chinese Table Tennis Association and the City of Chengdu authorities, all parties have agreed that holding the World Championships in Autumn was the best course of action. The event was originally scheduled in April.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, the ITTF has faced several challenges. Once again, it will work hard to minimise the impact on the players and to enable them to compete in the best and safest conditions. China is a long-standing member of the table tennis family, and the ITTF trusts that it will deliver an outstanding event in seven months’ time.
