On Sunday 29 March 2020, the ITTF Executive Committee met to discuss further the effects of
COVID-19 on the international table tennis event schedule.

Due to the continued uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and the postponement of
the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the ITTF Executive Committee reached the
following decisions:

  • Suspension of all currently planned ITTF events and activities that involve international
    travel until 30 June 2020.

As a result of the ITTF decision, ITTF-Oceania confirms the postponement of the 2020 Oceania
Cup in Papua New Guinea.

We will be considering alternative dates for the Oceania Cup in consultation with the ITTF and
the Papua New Guinea Table Tennis Federation and will make a further announcement before
the end of June 2020.
