World Table Tennis Championships 2023: It gives me great pleasure to address you this morning on the joyous and historic opening of the 2023 ITTF World Table Tennis Championships in Durban. The City of eThekwini, the Province of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, and the entire African continent will welcome a group of world-class table tennis players, their management teams, and the entire international table tennis family to our shores in less than a year.
It is important to note that this launch event will be held at the Moses Mabhida Stadium, which is a famous landmark and one of the best heritage projects that came about as a result of the 2010 Football World Cup. We demonstrated to the world that Durban, KwaZulu-Natal, and South Africa are capable of hosting events of the highest caliber during the World Cup. Indeed, when we move forward with our preparations to host the world championship of table tennis, we expect nothing less this time around.

I would like to express my gratitude to the ITTF, SASCOC, South African Table Tennis Board, and other stakeholders for accepting our bid to host this prestigious event in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal. We were indeed thrilled on September 28, 2020, when the ITTF decided to grant Durban the right to host the 2023 Games. We all know that this is the first time these games have been held on the African continent since 1939, when they were held in Egypt. As representatives of the African continent, we will be hosting this.
We are very much interested in ensuring that this event leaves a lasting legacy that will be enjoyed by generations to come, in addition to the opportunity to host these top-of-the-line games that will be beamed live to audiences all over the world. Even though it won’t be as big as the football world cup, we expect table tennis to change. We pledge to collaborate with our stakeholders to make table tennis more accessible to thousands of young players across the Province, not just in Durban.

About World Table Tennis Championships
The International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) oversees the table tennis competitions known as the World Table Tennis Championships. Since 1926, the World Championships have been held every two years, beginning in 1957. In odd-numbered years, five individual events are currently held: men’s singles, women’s singles, men’s doubles, women’s doubles, and mixed doubles. In 2000, the men’s team and women’s team events of the World Team Table Tennis Championships became their own competition. The Group Titles are held in even numbered years.
The men’s team from Hungary won the championships 12 times during the early stages of the competition. Japan enjoyed brief dominance in the 1950s following this. With the exception of 1989–2000, when Sweden won four times, China continues to dominate the sport. From the 1960s onward, China became the new dominant power in this tournament. The men’s Chinese team has won a record-breaking 22 world team championships. With eight victories, Japan’s women’s team was a formidable force in the 1950s. From the 1970s onward, the Chinese women established a firm hold on the world team championships. Since 1975, they have only lost twice. China has won 22 titles as a women’s team.

- China Central Television (CCTV), TV Tokyo, and Eurosport are some of the major television channels. Between them, they cover all of Europe, West/Central Asia, China, and Japan. Japan is a bigger market than ever because table tennis is growing in popularity ahead of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. The world’s largest population will be shown more than 50 hours of live action by CCTV alone. This will result in the largest ever television coverage of the World Table Tennis Championships when combined with all other broadcasters.
