    Posted: 03/18/2018 at 4:15pm
As many already knew, the T League is a new league coming this fall in Japan. It will supersede the current JTTL. A press conference was held last month.

Official website - http://tleague.jp/

The 3 visions for Japan table tennis
* To become the World No. 1 TT league
* To increase the business value of TT market
* To enrich lives through table tennis

Logo:
* The blade of a racket that symbolizes TT
* Representing the strength of weapons(tools)
* Indication of World No. 1 league in gold

T League pyramid structure:
T Premier
T1/2 - national
T3 - prefectural
Tx - municipal

The league will be established in 3 stages:
1st - T Premier in Oct 2018
2nd - T1/2 in 2021
3rd - T3/Tx in 2025.

T Premier is composed of 4 men's and 4 women's teams with 6 members and above for each. At least 1 top 10 world-ranked member for each team.

10/2018-2/2019, regular season, with 7 rounds, 21 matches in total.

3/2019, playoffs between the top 2 teams per gender.

Hmmm, it's certain the Japanese folks want them to join. And quite a few CNT players are playing in the JTTL.

That WR 10 player rule says within the last 2 years. They have enough players.

so 4 top men and 4 top women in WR10 by 2024?  if the current situation persist, they don't have a chance in the men's without outside players.  in any case since this is a goal by 2024 it doesn't stop anything even if not probable

Mizutani was top 10 in 12/2017. Niwa and Matsu-Ken are in top 10 as of 3/2018.
So by that rule, they have at least 3 domestic players until 12/2019, and 2 until 3/2020.

On the women's side, it's even better.

Also, that rule doesn't limit it to domestic players. The T League is open to the world. Those in the top 10 can join. They seriously want the Chinese to come. They're willing to pay each roughly US$.47 million.

4 teams for each gender seem very few. I guess that's better than nothing.

I'm surprised to see his name, too. I don't even know Gucchy is a profesional player. Anyone knows exactly how good he is? What's his estimated ranking in Japan? top 30? 50?

Yes... I am surprised to see Gucchy signing with a pro league... Although he signed as an athlete, I think he will become a "promoter" or something close to a team mascot LOL

I do not think he even breaks the top 250. Gucchy is a good amateur player but certainly does not stand a chance against professionals.  Just watch videos of him being destroyed by JTTL players.

Playing in Russia's Pro League is the best lucrative job ever. Yet, Russian players are quite so-so on International Rate. So paradoxical fact, indeed.
