ITTF-Oceania are excited to launch the ITTF-Oceania Tour, a series of events taking place throughout the region, designed to provide competitive settings for athletes from all 24 Member Associations.
This is a new initiative by ITTF-Oceania, in line with the 2017-2020 Strategic Plan, which will see ITTF-Oceania work closely with member associations to deliver a tour comprising of six premier events with:
- new levels of sophistication and professionalism,
- a minimum prize money of AU$3,000 per event,
- an increase in media and exposure of our sport, and
- increased levels of competition.
The ITTF-Oceania Tour will become the main qualification pathway to secure a position in the ITTF-Oceania Cup, as points obtained will directly affect the renewed ITTF-Oceania Cup Points List.
It is important to note that the ITTF-Oceania Tour Events are open to only those athletes eligible to participate in the ITTF World Cup, therefore ensuring the events have strong participation and representation of athletes from Oceania.
ITTF-Oceania encourages all members to take part in this new and exciting project. The hosting rights of the 2018 ITTF-Oceania Tour Events are now available and open for application. Please see below links to the relevant documents:
The Bid Application must be completed and submitted by the 15th of November 2017, as well as a budget submitted with the application.
