China to hold Olympic simulation event in May

The Chinese Table Tennis Association will stage an Olympic simulation event in May to help its players prepare for this year’s Tokyo Games, local media reported.

Thirty-six men’s and women’s singles players, and 16 mixed doubles pairs will feature at the WTT (World Table Tennis) Grand Smashes Trials and Olympic Simulation, to be held in Xinxiang in northern Henan Province from May 3 to 7 ahead of the Olympics, which begin in July. The tournament is open to paddlers who have qualified for singles competitions at China’s National Games, finalists in singles events at the under-18 and under-15 national championships, and young players who have qualified through other competitions. The event, which will employ a similar format to the Olympic tournament, will also offer the chance to qualify for other competitions, including the 2021 World Championships Finals. Asian powerhouse China has won all but four of the 32 table tennis gold medals since the sport was first included at the Olympics in Seoul in 1988.
