Quote Each event will have four matches: The first contest will be a three-set doubles and the next three will be five-set singles. If the teams are tied at 2-2, they will play a “victory match,” which is a one-set singles contest, to determine the winner.

Each club is required to have at least one “S” class player, meaning he or she has to be placed within the top 10 in the world rankings or has made a podium finish in a singles competition at either the Olympics or world championships or earned a team gold medal in those in the last four years. The S player must play at least eight matches during the regular season.

There are other player ranks that the teams will have to qualify as well.

...

The teams compete based upon the number of points they score in each game. (If a team wins 4-0, it will get four points. If it is a 3-1 win, the team gets three points. Even if a team loses 2-3 through a victory match, it will still earn one point.)
Viscaria FL - 91g
+ Neo H3 2.15 Blk - 44.5g(55.3g uncut bare)
+ Hexer HD 2.1 Red - 49.3g(68.5g 〃 〃)
= 184.8g

DHS did made a very specific Olympic version of ball, impossible to distinguish from DHS mass product. Those "olympic balls" are going to come in play few months prior to the Tokyo Olympics.

On a side note: I find it interesting that Under Armour, a USA company, has the clothing contract for the premium Japanese table tennis professional league.  I would anticipate the ball will be Japanese, the table will be Japanese, and the gallery of sponsors will be Japanese.  We will see who has landed the flooring contract.

It is common for Japanese engagements to be very Japanese.

Prices for tickets have been released. Most expensive seats on opening day (the first match) can cost up to 100,000 yen (appx. 1000 USD) 😨
