      Saw it coming in 2018 regarding the "streamlining" of "Regulations for World..."

      Interesting proposition for Resolution J. The way Europe treating the coaches like dirt has been a problem for so long.

      重视运动员轻视教练

      刘加诒将欧洲乒乓球滑坡的原因归结于本土教练水平不高、技术滞后、人才培养体系不健全三大原因。 这一点,德国教练并不认同,但是刘教练的说法并不是没有依据的。

      刘教练说,欧洲乒协主席在去年的年会上曾经说过,如果只有一份工资,他会选择把这份工资给运动员,而不是教练,他认为教练员甚至是“可有可无”的。这样的观点导致在整个欧洲,教练的积极性都不是很高,一切都全靠运动员的自觉。“我们也有纪律,但是如果你管得太严,他会觉得你是侵犯了他的自由和人权,这就是欧洲人的观念,他们把乒乓球只是当成自己生活的一部分,但是绝对不会是全部。”

      刘教练已经在欧洲执教14年,他说自己很希望中国的乒乓球能够一直强盛。但是事情是相对的,如果欧洲不发展起来,如果中国队一直都没有对手,人们也就不会对乒乓球有那么大的热情了。

      WTTTC Busan from 27. february with 32 or even just 16 teams.
      Next time in Chengdu, up from 32 to 40 teams! (19 votes for/18 against!)

      World juniors U19 and U15. Portugal 21. Tunisia 22.

      More protected dates for national leagues. And maybe a mix team world championship.

      Minutes from the meeting will probably come soon.

      Yes, in a way. It is presented as an expanded WTTTC. 50/50 true/false . In the old school WTTTC, "all nations" could enter, and go to the tournament. The top nations were fighting for the title, the others only for promotion or relegation from the B group, C group. However, they could not win! Now it is like an "inverted Hotel California". You can check-in anytime, but you can never come! All nations fight for the title (good), but it is in "first stage" groups where "Slonesia meets Slotania" in a training hall with 50 spectators. In the end you stay home (not so good). Only the top teams meet in the WTTTC finals.

      Originally the plan was 32 teams in the finals. Hong Kong proposed (and got) 40. (HK is sometimes HK, and sometimes others, like the Athletes commission.)

      Interesting to see how Busan in march is solved, with 32 or maybe 16 teams. Who will be scrapped, and how??
