The two organisations signed a Master Continental Agreement

The ITTF and the Asian Table Tennis Union (ATTU) signed a Master Continental Agreement (MCA) on 29 March 2022 in Doha, Qatar.

The Presidents of the two organisations, Petra Sörling and Khalil Al-Mohannadi, expressed their satisfaction and their determination to enhance the cooperation in various areas of the development, commercialisation, and promotion of table tennis on the Continent.

The main objectives of the MCA are:

  • to improve the governance
  • to improve the events organised on the Continent, particularly the regional qualification events for the ITTF World Table Tennis Championships, other world title events, and the Olympic Games
  • to further develop table tennis and the Continental Member Associations
  • to increase activities in social responsibility through table tennis
  • to further commercialise and professionalise table tennis activities on the Continent

The MCA will also streamline the collaboration between ATTU and the entire ITTF Group, including the commercial and events platform World Table Tennis and its social responsibility arm, the ITTF Foundation.

This is the fifth MCA of the ITTF, which previously had agreements with ITTF Africa, ITTF Americas, ITTF Oceania, and the European Table Tennis Union.
