Swaything Cup ((World Team Table Tennis Championship Men's Teams Cup) (https://www.tt-kharkiv.com/en/tags/swaything-cup/) presented to the winners of the Men’s Team event at each World Championship. The Cup was donated in 1926 by Lady Baroness Swaythling (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gladys,_Baroness_Swaythling), mother of Hon. Дж.Айвор Монтегю (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ivor_Montagu). The Swaythling Cup dates back to the first ever World Championships staged in 1926 in London.

Any idea why some important players did not play for their country in important matches? They are on the list though.
1. Paul Drinkhall against Poland. England lost 3-2 with Pitchford winning 2.
2. Jonathan Groth against Brazil, with brazil winning 3-1.
3. Khanak Jha against Thailand. USA still winning 3-2.

This is very strange.

Also I find it funny that Table tennis is the only sport enforcing these ridiculous corona rules still with masks and no touching the table etc..
All just to make China happy (not only here in Chengdu). There will be no problem holding the World cup in Qatar in football without specific restrictions for example.

What is up the the nets? I've seen it in like 2 matches that players complained about the net being too loose. I think one was Kristian Karlsson against UK and I watched like 6 people trying to set up a net for 50 minutes in the Hungary-Iran match. First time I have seen a set take more than an hour and need 3 warmups.

Keep in mind China doesn't really have a vaccine. They only used their own home grown vaccine which is basically useless. So the entire population is unprotected.

Well when you lock down entire cities and starve people to death other countries notice. If I were on the team I wouldn't be going to China right now either. It's just not worth the risk.

I had no idea about the vaccine!!!! So why didn't they move the tournament when so many players are missing!!! How come no one is officially complaining!!! The whole tournament is a joke!!!! China would of won it anyway!!! But maybe a full strength German team could of made it interesting!!!!

That's a great question! It tells you how much power and influence China has over organizations to do their bidding. They spend billions of dollars per year on propaganda.

Starving people, you said? Like the consequences coming from the USA blowing the Northstream pipelines?

hi how many teams can participate in these tournaments?
40 teams are chosen based on certain criteria such as World Rankings or probably winning a continental championship in previous year or something I do not know. (I do not know how Canada made it)

Once upon a time all member nations of ITTF were eligible to play in this event. So I think they were lot of teams , like lot more than 100 nations
I wonder what the record is.
They used to have team events first week and the 5 individual events (singles, doubles & mixed doubles) in second week

Also , until 1999, the WTTTC & WITTC was held at the same time. It used to be every year (which was an amazing achievement then). Then they made it every two years and after 1999 they split it into WITTC in odd numbered years Like 2021 and WTTTC in even numbered years (like in Chengdu now) .

Yeah Drinkhall would have made a big difference I think. But good to see Pitchford's form improving

How in the world do you equate a gas pipeline to starving people? First of all try getting your news from somewhere else that reports the truth. Secondly, stop hanging out in Jihad chatrooms.

A shame we had such an imbalance in the team - as has been said Drinkhall + Jarvis alongside Pitch would have likely impacted our progress through to quarters..

How come there were fans in the audience during quarter finals? Did they open up the lock down? Or were these communist party elites that don't have to play by the rules?

Drinkhall does not do that well in Jura Morez nowadays, only 50% wins last season, and the french Pro A is not the best league in Europe. He's also lost to really lower guys like Stéphane Ouaiche, Mehdi Bouloussa or Sadi Ismaïlov... Tom Jarvis would have had a chance against Jules Rolland that's for sure, but not against the bros.

Exactly, that's how Russia's been able to host winter Olympics and the 2018 football WC. It's a bit different for China though: Liu Guoliang is a well known multiple office holder, all the sponsors for the WTT are mostly chinese, Europe is not interested in anything WTT related anymore since the last ITTF presidency coup against Thomas Weikert, a coup driven by China, let's be honest. The WTT has also wanted the DTTB to be inflicted with penalties, the FFTT just... bent the knee, now you understand why the german team was not there with Timo, Pat and Dima. Not a coincidence: things are not going well between WTT/ITTF and the DTTB. And the DTTB is strong enough to... care nothing about it: see the Neu Ulm project with 4 top 10 players, this team could easily upset any chinese super league team.

A team event in a place with strong covid restrictions is not worth the hussle for most of them then, no points to win or loose for the world rankings,...

And about the northstream pipeline.. I laughed hard too hahaha, it could have been done by... Russia too, or even France by some 'barbouzes' (spook agents) to force Macron to protect the internet cables under the atlantic ocean... because it's what the defense office advised him to do right after that incident. Or China, or even India or the UK ! everything is good to charge the enemy, to make profit,...

It's really "strange" indeed: I've searched for Austria, and have been really surprised to not see them in the tournament ! I mean.. at least Gardos and Habesohn were at least as good as Kazakhstan or Uzbekistan... those teams were big jokes, exactly like Australia or Canada... And for the girls, no Sofia Polcanova, so... no european champion then.

Everyone praises the Chinese Super League, but since Neu Ulm built a kind of Real Madrid Galactics era team, I'm quite sure the best league in the world is now the Bundesliga, even with a.. C team for me, Germany is still able to beat France, today's european second best league now that Russia is out of continental and world tournaments, and nothing less than South Korea ! I'd like to see the WTT setting up a club world championship, exactly like the FIFA does, to see what is REALLY the best club in the world.

The men's game seems to be drifting away from the table again. So many great counterlooping rallies. Harimoto more than held his own counterlooping vs FZD and WCQ. Too bad Jun Mizutani couldn't hang on for a few more years.

I thought the same thing but when you look at the amount of power and spin they put on the ball how can you possibly return those if you're too close? There's no way you could keep it on the table from close in.

It wasn't France A team, rather A' or even B team. Jules Rolland wouldn't have been there if Cassin or Gauzy were there. he's only the 8th best ranked French player.

Personally i think the coach should have let Lebesson played against Stumper in QF even if he lost to him in groups it was a close match where Stumper had a bit more luck. I know Rolland had a good head-to-head in Bundesliga, but Bundesliga and World Champs are a different thing. Lebesson had the skills and experience.

anyway Lebruns have to improve a bit more to get medals.
