Separate competitions

The World Table Tennis Championships first took place in 1926 in London, England. However, since the year 2000, the 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.

So 2022 was the year for the team events to be contested, and Chengdu, China are due to stage the event from 30 September to 9 October 2022.

The World Table Tennis Championships 2022 events are going to be...

 

The Swaythling Cup was donated in 1926 by Lady Baroness Swaythling, mother of Ivor Montagu, whilst the Corbillon Cup was donated in 1933 by Marcel Corbillon, President of the French TTA, for the first Women's Team event at the 1934 World Championships.

However, the original Corbillon Cup disappeared just after World War Two, so the German Table Tennis Federation paid for an exact replica in 1949 (the German Women's team won the Cup in the 1939 World Championships - the last time it was played before the outbreak of World War Two).

Format of the 2022 World Team Championships

Due to the worldwide Coronavirus Pandemic, the Team Championships for 2022 had a revised qualification and playing system.

The 2022 World Team Championships were due to be played in a single "Division" with 40 teams in 8 groups of 5 teams.

Qualification

33 Teams qualified from Continental competitions and the quota allocation was: 4 for Africa, 10 for Asia, 11 for Europe, 6 for PANAM, and 2 for Oceania.

The host nation was also guaranteed a place.

The remaining six places were reallocated as follows - Europe (1), Asia (1), PANAM (1), Africa (1), Oceania (1) and the highest ranked not-yet qualified team from the World Team Ranking as at January 2022.

 

However, not all teams confirmed their entries and therefore fewer teams actually took part in the competition.

Playing System for the 2022 World Team Championships

The 2022 World Team Championships were due to be played in a single "Division" with 40 teams in 8 groups of 5 teams.

Each group of 5 teams would play a complete round robin competition (4 matches per team).

Following the completion of the round robin in each group, a single knock-out competition would played.

The winners of each group (8 teams) would be drawn into the first 8 seeded positions of the knockout competition.

The teams finishing 2nd in each group would then be drawn randomly against a group winner, with the exception that teams having played against each other in the group stage shall not meet again in the first round of the knockout competition.

 

However, not all teams confirmed their entries and therefore fewer teams actually took part in the competition.
