Hello, I hope I got the right thread. Since I started following world class Table Tennis I've had some doubts.
1) To win a Grand Slam which tournaments does one have to win?
2) How often are World Cups and World Championships held?
3) Do GAC Group and LIEBHERR tournaments count for the world ranking?
4) How often are the WTTTC (Zen-Noh I think) held?
Thank you for the answers in advance :D

WTTTC are every 4, GAC does affect WR, and if think leibherr does too. WTTC are every year. If you win singles at the World Cup, WTTC, and Olympics you have won a grand slam. Did I miss anything or get anything wrong?

World Singles Cup is every year (Men and Women in seperate weekends).
World Team Cup is every year.
World Team Championships (WTTTC) is in even years only (2012, 2014...).
World Championships (WTTC) is in odd years only (2011, 2013...).

The big difference between World Championships and World Cup is that the Championships take about a week and have hundreds of participants while Cups take a only a weekend and have about 25 participants or teams who are invited based on their results and ranking.
