Quote World Table Tennis is excited to announce the hosting of two marquee events in China, which will be delivered after the Chengdu 2022 ITTF World Team Table Tennis Championships Finals.

From 19 to 23 October, with USD$800,000 prize money on offer, WTT Champions Macao will gather the Top 30 men and women stars from the ITTF World Table Tennis Rankings published on 23 August 2022 and two wildcards.

The lineup for WTT Champions Macao is sure to have fans excited, with China's best players leading the charge. The event will also see inaugural WTT Champions Men's Singles winner Tomokazu Harimoto chasing back-to-back titles in Macao. Meanwhile, the likes of Sweden's Truls Moregard and Brazil's Hugo Calderano will light up Infinity∞Arena in a bid for WTT Series glory. In the Women's Singles, after Singapore Smash and WTT Champions European Summer Series 2022, China's top seeds will be looking to add to their title collection. Standing in their way will be Japan's Mima Ito, Austria's Sofia Polcanova and Puerto Rico's Adriana Diaz.

This will be the last opportunity for players to earn ranking points and qualify for the next event of the 2022 WTT Series, WTT Cup Finals Xinxiang.

From 27 to 30 October, the WTT Cup Finals Xinxiang will provide the stage for the best 16 men and women players to battle it out to be crowned champions and for USD$1,000,000 prize money.

Both events will feature men's and women's competitions held simultaneously, with only a main draw knockout phase, played on just one table, and equal prize money awarded to men and women players.

The entry deadline and hence the world ranking used should be on 20 September 2022. The one they will use was after the end of ETTC. What do we need the handbook for if they don't follow the rules?

Quote To slightly compensate for the restrictions and also to lure players in order to have a competitive playing 32, organisers have hiked the prize money on offer.

While most WTT Champions tournaments offer a prize purse of $500,000, the Macao tournament’s prize purse is $700,000. There’s a significant bump in money for playing in the opening rounds (Rd of 32, 16). For some context, the WTT in Budapest which was held in July this year offered $4,250 for playing in Rd of 32 and $6,500 for the Rd of 16. Macao on the other hand is offering $7,250 for Rd of 32 and $10,000 for Rd of 16, something that is unprecedented.

“Just playing the first round guarantees players $7,250. That’s a great lure but when you take into consideration the effort it’s going to take to get there, you understand why,” Sathiyan said.
