    ITTF reduces number of players at WTTC

    Hi everyone,

    New proceedings will take place at World Championships now. Only 3 players per country + 1 if there is one in the top 100 + 1 if there is one in the top 20. And 2 double pairs per country.

    "The development of table tennis can not rely on restraining the strong teams but instead raise the level of the middle and lower ranking teams. With that, table tennis will have an even better promotion."



    China head coach Liu Guoliang believes that the reform on decreasing the number of participants in the World Championships is not only hindering the potential of many players but also putting the sport in danger.

    "If we blindly restrict China then there will be a decrease in manpower and resources China will be investing on table tennis. It will be a great loss for the sport and table tennis is in more danger." Liu Guoliang expressed.

    Cai Zhenhua of China explained that it's vital for young players to represent their nation in major competitions for experience. This rule will reduce that. "Young players from Portugal, France and Japan are very outstanding. If they will allow these promising talents to develop, our advantage will not be that obvious. The thrill from the games will then come out naturally." Cai Zhenhua said.

    What do you think? Do we want to give players a chance to play or do we want to see the best?

    Lee don't need a change like this. Let China dominate and let us try to beat them.

    Yeah I think this will be the case, it will be hard for the young ones to come through and play in majors.
