HÀ NỘI — The  二 三rd ITTF-Asian Table Tennis Championships will be held in Jiangsu Province’s Wuxi City, China this weekend.

The Championships will welcome around  三00 athletes from  三0 countries to compete in men’s and women’s singles and doubles, mixed doubles and team matches. Eight Vietnamese athletes who participated in the ASEAN Championship three months ago will take part in the eight-day tournament.  

The four men and four women are currently the best of the country based on their positions at the national championship and other high-ranked tournaments in  二0 一 六.

At the ASEAN competition, Nguyễn Anh Tú won a men’s singles gold medal while his tea妹妹ate Mai Hoàng Mỹ Trang took a women’s singles silver. The two athletes also triumphed in the men’s and women’s team categories.

The Asian championship is a biennial tournament regarded as the continental championships by the International Table Tennis Federation.

Games will be organised at the Wuxi Sports Centre.

The draws will be made under the supervision of Asian Table Tennis Union’s Technical and Umpire Co妹妹ittee on Saturday.

Team events will be divided into Champion Division and First Division.

In the first stage, all groups play in round robin system to determine their positions. In the second stage, group winners play in a progressive knock-out system to determine the top two teams (winner and runner-up) that directly enter the Champion Division.

Other teams play in a progressive knock-out system to decide their final positions.
