Although the document published yesterday does not mention it, the Open event will
be organized using normal draw system and best of 5 games.
Following a decision of the ITTF PTT Division, on 26 October 2010 (morning and afternoon), all participating players in class 5, both male and female, will undergo short classification examination by the international panel of classifiers. Every player is required to bring their International Classification Card with them for this classification. This classification examination has no influence on a player’s class for these World Championships. The schedule will be announced after the arrival of the teams in Gwangju.
On the afternoon of 27 October 2010, there will be an introductory seminar for the classification of players with an intellectual disability in TT. All coaches interested in this area and also other competent persons /classifiers, umpires, former active players with good TT technical background or as officials are encouraged to attend. The venue and time will be announced in Gwangju. This will be important for the inclusion of class 11 for the 2012 Paralympic Games.

So, I computed the ratio of victories over all matches played against players from same class only and retained players who have won at least 75% of their matches. Of course, a high score is arguable for players who played very few matches except for Chinese players. So here is the list of 100 best players this year.|
