USA Table Tennis (“USATT”), the National Governing Body for the sport of table tennis, today announced that the 2021 World Table Tennis Championships will be held in Houston, Texas, from November 23 through 29, 2021. USATT will serve as the host National Federation for this historic and prestigious event, which was awarded by the International Table Tennis Federation (“ITTF”) to an American city for the first time ever in a year that coincides with the 50th anniversary of another historic table tennis event, Ping Pong Diplomacy.
“We are overjoyed that the World Table Tennis Championships are going to be held in Houston,” said Virginia Sung, CEO of USA Table Tennis. “Not only will it mark the first time the U.S. has hosted this prestigious event, but the 50th anniversary of Ping Pong Diplomacy adds an additional layer of significance. Once again, we will have the opportunity to celebrate our great international sport in the spirit of inclusion and to demonstrate our shared sense of humanity as we look toward the future. We know that the City of Houston and Harris County-Houston Sports Authority will deliver an extraordinary event for all of us with their exceptional hospitality and professionalism.”
