Does someone know if this competition will have a second season.
I have seen some players who played there last year will now play in the Ultimate table tennis league in India....so I guess there won't be T2APAC this year ?

Would be a huge shame if they didn't have a second season. IMO this was the best filmed table tennis and one of the most exciting competitions.

T2apac have announced today they will be a diamond tier event of the world tour and therefore, they will provide world ranking points.

The money and the points....this will be huge !

So basically, no season 2 like last year, new type of event during the year but not a league.

It seems that T2APAC will turn into a multi events (tournaments) to test new ITTF ideas

T2APAC to launch new ITTF ‘Diamond-tier’ events in 2019

T2APAC partners ITTF to elevate brand and commercial value of World Tour;
T2APAC and ITTF World Tour to unify from 2021

3 July 2018 (Singapore) – T2APAC’s new role in revolutionising the world’s professional table tennis tour took another step closer with the announcement it will launch new ITTF ‘Diamond-tier’ events next year, paving the roadmap to the launch of a revamped ITTF World Tour in 2021.

T2APAC has been granted the right to organise and commercialise a brand new ‘Diamond-tier’ series of events in 2019 and 2020, which will feature the highest World Tour points system and a bolstered prize purse. The new tournaments bolster the World Tour’s calendar of events which currently includes the World Tour Platinum (6) and the World Tour (6).

This follows SportsMaster’s landmark agreement with the ITTF yesterday to fully professionalize its World Tour in 2021 and set up a new platform of professional tournaments. SportsMaster is Seamaster’s sports media and commercial arm, and established T2APAC in 2015.

T2APAC will also work with the ITTF over the next two years as an innovation engine testing the feasibility of new initiatives that will ensure the new ITTF World Tour achieves optimal commercial value in 2021, such as new tournament and broadcast innovations, athlete operations systems, and elevating spectators’ venue experience. T2APAC’s new partnership with the ITTF will establish several key milestones in the lead up to the revamped professional tour in 2021, which includes being part of ITTF’s sales process commencing in 2019 and incorporating the best of the ‘Diamond-tier’ events’ new match formats and gameplay.

Said SportsMaster Founder and Seamaster Chairman Frank Ji: “Innovations and success go hand in hand, and SportsMaster’s new partnership with the ITTF will set the sport in a new direction of exponential growth for table tennis. We’re encouraged by ITTF’s belief in T2APAC’s vision to professionalise the sport, which will benefit the federation, current and new sponsors and partners and most importantly, the athletes that represent our sport globally.”

 

Said ITTF President Thomas Weikert: “T2APAC’s dedication to introduce new ways to take our sport forward and make it relevant to current and future table tennis fans is exemplary and remarkable. Which is why we are assured that the roadmap to reinventing the ITTF World Tour is based on robust principles and expertise that T2APAC has developed over the years. We look forward to working closely with them to take professional table tennis to new heights.”

Said T2APAC’s CEO Jeff Chue: “We’re excited to work closely with the ITTF to share our expertise in commercial strategy, content monetization, branding, athlete management and competition operations. By unlocking its unrealized commercial potential, we are confident of at least a threefold increase in the commercial value of the new World Tour when it is launched in 2021.”

 

Said former ITTF Athletes Commission Chairman and former World No. 1, Vladimir Samsonov: “After playing on the World Tour since 1996 and playing in the inaugural season of T2APAC, it is amazing news that integration of T2APAC and the World Tour is on the horizon where the sport can truly become professional. This is exactly what table tennis needs and T2APAC will bring a lot of expertise and ideas to the World Tour – in my eyes, this is a perfect match.”

 

The T2APAC and ITTF will also merge operations, and will start operating from a new office based in Singapore this year.

Ai Fukuhara... T2 cavern... from Siberia to Alaska... mixed singles... - confusing!

It sounds to me they're open to any ideas. Nothing is set in stone for the time being. Mixed singles would be fun as I suggested on TTD, and would be a first if they do implement it.

SASAKAWA CUP , CRAZY TROPHY of 1 million.

SASAKAWA Cup, held by a Japan big businessman in 1985, was the best lucrative pinpang circus ever. Samsonov Vladimir came out a final winner and was donated a Super Prize of 1,000,000 USD.

It looks like T2APAC events will be a new 'Diamond' ITTF event (a step up from 'Platinum' I guess) with more prize money:

T2APAC and the ITTF will work together on creating the most prestigious events of the ITTF and from 2019, players will be awarded world ranking points, make connections with the World Tour, and boast the highest prize money of all major international tour events.

Although I like having the diamond events to give players a chance at more prize money, it appears it’s limited to only the top 15 players + 1 host nation player. But the one thing I really do not like is that attending players get additional bonus points to be added on top of their 8 results for the past 12 months. This seems very unfair to those trying to break into the top 15 since they are not invited. I’ve previously mentioned how the ITTF World Ranking point system already favors the top players due to the removal of the half points policy. This makes it even worse. Every Diamond Event player gets a minimum of 400 additional bonus points (loser in round of 16).

That's a really bad idea. If it's invitation only it should not have ranking points.
