Electronic Table Tennis Review System Approved by the ITTF Board of Directors

The Board of Directors passed the proposition on Table Tennis Review (TTR) in its meeting on 27 November 2021 in Houston, Texas, giving players the right to review a decision made by an umpire, which they believe is incorrect.

Effective immediately, the TTR may now be used, and it will come into effect when an appeal is made by a player against a decision of a responsible match official on a question of fact. The help of highly accurate technology will allow better implementation of current Laws and Regulations.

TTR will instantly provide a replay of the circumstances leading to a decision subject to review. The replay will be reviewed by a video match official, who will have the authority to overturn the original decision based on the evidence.

The ITTF has always put players first and is committed to continuously improving their match experience through consultation and innovation.

New Committee Chairs

The Board of Directors also appointed the following Committee Chairs:

  • Equipment Committee: Rita Bsaibes
  • Media Committee: Arne Madsen
  • Para Table Tennis Committee: Constantina Crotta
  • Rules Committee: Rudolf Sporrer
  • Sports Science & Medical Committee: Miran Kondric
  • Umpires And Referees Committee: Werner Thury
  • Veterans Committee: Reto Bazzi

Additional members were appointed to the following Committees:

  • Finance and Audit Committee: Ludiwine Arpino and Robert Brophy
  • Integrity Board: Enric Ripoll-Gonzalez and Ruedi Brönnimann
Granada to Host 2022 World Para Championships

The ITTF Board of Directors also elected Granada, Spain, as the Host City of the 2022 World Para Championships in two rounds of voting. The Andalusian city has a long tradition of table tennis and is the hometown of seven-time Paralympian Jose Manuel Ruiz.

The tournament will take place from 7 to 13 November 2022 and will include singles, doubles, and mixed doubles. It will include female class 1 and class 2 in two different events for the first time.

The ITTF Board of Directors working documents are available here.
