In light of the COVID-19 public health crisis and the increased restrictions on international travel, ITTF-Oceania has taken decisions in this period to suspend events, with the health and safety of the athletes, coaches, officials and fans as the top priority.

These decisions, made either on a case by case approach or in the form of provisional longer-term suspensions were applied to a number of events originally scheduled between March and June 2020.

Following recent decisions taken in full cooperation with the ITTF and other stakeholders, ITTF- Oceania regrets to inform that, despite all efforts, the current uncertainty has led to the cancellation of the ITTF World Tour Platinum Australian Open.

Thank you for your understanding.
