General News: ITTF Leadership Update
It’s six months on from the 2017 Annual General Meeting, and ITTF is moving forward with their goals and vision of a new era for the federation.

Looking to ensure a clear path and direction, the ITTF has contracted an industry leading company to conduct a strategic plan. All table tennis stakeholders will be invited to contribute to and have a hand in determining the long-term direction of the ITTF. This will be carried out in parallel to the promised constitution review, which is already in its initial stages. These measures will guarantee a more modern organisation driving us forward.

With these changes in mind, the ITTF are slowly implementing a new staff structure and will continue to do so well into 2018. With the restructuring and new programs in the pipeline, ITTF is now on the lookout for staff that fit the new vision of the organisation. Those interested are encouraged to check out the current openings on the new job opportunities page on our website.

This progressive vision is already bearing fruit on the frontline of ITTF events. The prize money for the Men’s and Women’s World Cups will be increasing in 2018, as well as the overall prize money of the 2018 World Tour. The process for the 2019 World Tour will start in the coming weeks and the ITTF has been working harder with the continents to ensure that the calendar is confirmed as early as possible, enabling all stakeholders to have adequate time to plan their events around the ITTF’s calendar.

The positive outlook for future events has been further cemented with the improved public bid process for the 2020 World Table Tennis Championships bringing immediate dividends. For the first time in recent memory the ITTF received three bids, from three continents. This is not only a result of the improved bid process, but also a credit to the 2017 World Table Tennis Championships, which was a perfect showcase of what the event can bring to the city and country in terms of promotion and tourism revenue.
