World Cups are prestigious and globally followed competitions in the world table tennis calendar.
Men and Women Individual World Cups take place each year, with the World Team Cup held every two years, as players aim to make their own piece of table tennis history.
Individual events have 20 players including the World Champion, qualifiers from each of the Continental Cups, a host player, and a wildcard. 3 days of competition create magical moments.
