2022 World Team Table Tennis Championships Finals Confirmed in April
The ITTF Group, the Chinese Table Tennis Association (CTTA) and the city of Chengdu have unveiled the dates of the 2022 World Team Table Tennis Championships Finals. The event will take place from Sunday 17 to Tuesday 26 April 2022.
ITTF President Petra Sörling commented, "I am delighted to confirm the 2022 World Team Table Tennis Championships Finals will be held in April in Chengdu. In these times of uncertainty, we are grateful to our hosts, who have taken every necessary measure to ensure the successful delivery of our marquee event. The table tennis family is looking forward to a full year of table tennis action after a successful end of 2021 that heralded the international restart of the sport."
This will be the first time Chengdu is hosting a World Table Tennis Championships event and marks the first time since 2008 that China is playing host to a team championships event.
The 40 best men's and women's teams will be vying for a medal in the new Chengdu High-tech Sports Centre. The event will be put under strict closed-loop management in a bubble format. Moreover, the Chengdu entry and exit authorities will assist with visa processing and provide other border facilitation.
