The decision was taken at the Executive Committee held in Singapore from 15 to 16 March

One of the major items discussed during the meeting of the ITTF Executive Committee held in Singapore on 15 and 16 March was the outbreak of war in Ukraine. The ITTF Executive Committee remains very concerned and reaffirmed its full solidarity with the Ukrainian Table Tennis community.

The outcome of discussions is the formation of a Task Force, which will monitor the situation and co-ordinate efforts to allow Ukrainian players to continue participating at international events as soon as possible.

Members of the Task Force comprise Petra Sörling, ITTF President, fellow Executive Committee colleagues, Khalil Al-Mohannadi and Wahid Oshodi, alongside Zoran Primorac, Athletes’ Commission Chair, and Steve Dainton, ITTF Group Chief Executive Officer.

Previous decisions and future developments will be constantly evaluated.
