The group stage completed in the team events at the 2021 ITTF Pan American Championships in the Peruvian capital city of Lima; following the close of play on Thursday 18th November, the nations that have qualified for the 2022 World Team Championships in Chengdu are known.

For both men and women it is the same: Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Puerto Rico and the United States.

Clear cut decisions but there were moments of trepidation in competitions where teams finishing in first and second positions in each of three groups gained qualification.

It was none more so than in the men’s team contest between Puerto Rico and Ecuador, second place in the group being the prize on offer.

Just one of the five matches did not extend the full five games; that being the second contest when Alberto Miño overcame Daniel Gonzalez in straight games (11-8, 11-4, 11-5).

However, Daniel Gonzalez was to have the last laugh; after in the fourth match of the engagement Alberto Miño had accounted for Brian Afanador (11-7, 14-12, 8-11, 6-11, 11-7) to level matters, he overcame Rodrigo Tapia (8-11, 6-11, 9-11, 15-13, 11-6) to secure victory for the Caribbean island.
