Anticipation Builds as ITTF Table Tennis World Ranking Faces Major Shake-Up

As the finals of Durban 2023 draw near, the global table tennis community is eagerly awaiting the crowning of new World Champions and the subsequent reshuffling of the ITTF Table Tennis World Ranking. Excitement mounts as the points earned during the ITTF World Championships Finals 2021, along with several other events, are set to expire on Tuesday, 23 May.

Other events including the WTT Cup Finals Singapore, WTT Feeder Düsseldorf 2021, 2021 Finlandia International Open 2021, and the 2021 Pan-American Junior Games are also due to expire.

The ITTF Table Tennis Ranking system calculates a player’s position based on the total points earned from their best eight results within the last 12 months. However, due to the unprecedented challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, special measures were introduced to mitigate its impact. As a result, the validity of points awarded at 2021 and 2022 senior events was extended, ensuring fair representation despite the disruptions.

Table tennis enthusiasts around the world can look forward to the updated World Ranking, which will be unveiled tomorrow. This eagerly anticipated release will provide insights into the latest standings ahead of the highly anticipated finals in Durban. The question on everyone’s mind remains: who will emerge as the new World Champions and earn the coveted 2000 World Ranking points?
