Doha to Host World Table Tennis Championships 2025

The World Table Tennis Championships will be held in Doha, Qatar, in 2025, according to a decision made at the International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) Summit in Amman.

At the ITTF's Annual General Meeting, which took place on the last day of the first ITTF Summit in the capital of Jordan, Doha defeated Alicante, Spain, 57-39.

In March of last year, Doha hosted World Table Tennis (WTT) Contender and Star Contender competitions.

Officials are pleased with how it went and have scheduled another ITTF Summit for 2023.

Doha, which sits on the country's eastern coast, attracts tourists and hosts important athletic events.

With yesterday's announcement, Doha's reputation as one of the most enduring towns in table tennis continues.

The capital of Qatar has recently established itself as a crucial destination and the starting point for a new age in table tennis after serving as a hotspot for important events for almost three decades.

The WTT Middle East Hub successfully hosted back-to-back Contender and Star Contender events in March of last year, which served as the first official World Table Tennis events in 2021.

When the World Championship Finals arrive in Doha in 2025, Qatar's dedication to hosting high-profile blockbuster events ensures that more historic memories will be created.

The final World Championship Finals were held in Houston, USA, in 2021, and more than 500 million spectators watched them on television through more than 200 different countries.

All eyes will be on Doha to host an event that upholds the ITTF's aim to provide entertainment-driven events while keeping the legacy and history of the championships for both players and fans as momentum develops on the international table tennis calendar.

The World Championships will be held in Doha for the 59th time.

The International Table Tennis Federation is celebrating a successful first ITTF Summit by announcing the event will return in 2023 as three days of discussions come to a close in Amman, Jordan.

Petra Sörling, president of the ITTF, said, "I want to thank our Jordanian Hosts for such a great Summit. There is so much to take away from our conversations, and I cannot wait to implement many of the ideas presented.

Sörling added, "I can't wait for this event to come back in 2023; we will fine-tune our program to have even more interactions with our Member Associations."
