Due to the ITTF’s requirement to hold the ITTF Oceania Olympic Singles and Mixed Doubles Qualification events by the end of April, 2021, ITTF-Oceania has surveyed all member countries and reviewed quarantine and travel restrictions for each Oceania country.

Based on the information gathered, it is clear that the ITTF-Oceania Olympic Singles and Mixed Doubles Qualification events cannot be conducted in a manner that provides all Oceania Member Associations to compete.

Therefore it is with great regret that we announce the cancellation of the 2021 ITTF-Oceania Olympic Singles and Mixed Doubles Qualification event.

We have informed the ITTF and await the outcome of a meeting between the ITTF and IOC before announcing the alternative process for Olympic Qualification.

A further update on the 2021 ITTF-Oceania Championships and ITTF-Oceania Junior Championships will be released soon.

Thank you for your understanding.
