However, since 2000, the World Table Tennis Championship has been split into two separate competitions.

Team events are now held in even numbered years, whilst individual events (singles and doubles) are held in odd numbered years.

The 2015 World Table Tennis Championship was held in Suzhou, China from Sunday 26 April to Sunday 3 May 2015 at the Suzhou International Expo Centre.
