ITTF-Oceania is pleased to announce that Ryan Wiegand has been appointed Events Officer while Jens Lang is taking on the position of Events Manager.

The Events Officer will be responsible for driving the development and growth of the ITTF-Oceania Tour and Cup, while also organising the Junior and Senior Championships. The Events Manager will be responsible for attracting ITTF events to the Oceania region while also developing the Australian Open.

Both are coming on board after running a successful table tennis event at the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games. Their knowledge and skillset will be an asset as ITTF-Oceania looks to expand its capacity to run professional events with improved production values.

The appointments are another step in implementing the strategic investment made by ITTF, which is seeing an investment of significant financial and human resources into the region to assist Oceania’s commercial growth, and the popularity of the sport.

The appointment of Ryan Wiegand as Events Officer comes following the departure of Ignacio Rizo Patron from the role. ITTF-Oceania would like to thank Ignacio for his work during his time in the position, and wishes him all the best in his future endeavours.
