Table Tennis WWC History

The Women’s World Cup is held every year. The event was launched in 1996. Previously, only men’s singles were held, until the inauguration of women’s singles in 1996 and team competitions in 1990. Until the relaunch in 2007, team competitions and the World Team Cup were canceled for a long time. All competitions are ratified by the ITTF.

Players

Unless a third is invited as a wild card, no more than 2 players from the same association can participate

In any case of the World Champion and the World Cup title holder is the same player, and the host association does not have a player qualified as title holder nor from the world ranking, the vacancy goes to the next highest eligible player on the world ranking list.

  • The 1st Stage- Group Stage: The 16 players are divided into 4 equal groups, each playing against another, with the winners advancing to the 2nd stage.
  1. The highest-ranked player is placed in Group A, the 2nd highest in Group B, the 3rd highest in Group C and the 4th highest in Group D. The remaining players are drawn into the 4 groups at a time in ranking order.
  2. If there are 2 players from the same association, they will be drawn into separate groups but the 3rd player from the same association may be drawn into any group.
