The ITTF World Table Tennis Championships Finals Durban 2023 is less than one month away, as the competition will take place from 20-28 May.

Table tennis fans from around the world are eagerly anticipating the start of the event, where the world’s most elite table tennis players will come together to compete for the championship titles.

As the days wind down to the start of the competition, players are making their final preparations and fans are eagerly making their travel plans to witness this unforgettable sporting event.

ITTF President Petra Sörling expressed her excitement at welcoming representatives from all over the world.

“Last time the World Championships was played on the African continent was 1939 when the city of Cairo in Egypt hosted our finest and most grand event. A memorable milestone from the event was the Egypt Cup, a trophy that was bestowed upon the sport of table tennis by Egypt’s King Farouk and made of the finest of silver. It was decided there and then that the trophy would be given each year to the host city to symbolize the friendship that characterizes the championships.

“Now, we are extremely happy to once again be back in Africa and this time it is South Africa and the city of Durban that will host this magnificent event. We look forward to enjoying the excitement and beauty of our sport and having the pleasure of meeting all our friends in the global table tennis family,” she added.

“Furthermore, the possibility of being able to play an event without restrictions should, in these times, not be taken for granted. I am absolutely certain that history will be made for many reasons, and I am sure and that I am speaking on everyone’s behalf when I say that we simply cannot wait until the end of May when the South African Table Tennis Board and the city of Durban opens up its gates and welcomes the world.”

The ITTF’s unwavering commitment to promoting and developing table tennis globally is more evident than ever as the world prepares for this monumental event. Durban’s warm embrace of this championship serves as a testament to the sport’s surging popularity and limitless potential for the future.
