17 June 2014 Nico Verspeelt Tournament credit – RIO 2016
The following decision, made by the SOC regarding the tournament credit points for Rio 2016, is due to the fact that the matter has been raised and dealt not only by the para TT division but also by the ITTF president and ITTF EC in Tokyo.
The propositions are:
1. For Oceania, 110 tournament credit points and remove of the % requirement per year – new region and no tournaments organized in 2014.
2. For Africa, 110 tournament credit points and remove of the % requirement per year – no tournaments organized in 2014.
3. No change for the other regions.
4. All players playing in both PTT and ITTF competitions will accumulate the tournament credit points when playing in the ITTF major events (Continental and World Championships, Pro Tour, National Open, etc…).
As a result of this a working group will be established including people from outside PTT to look over our future qualification rules.
