The Korea Table Tennis Association announced on the 16th that it will hold the 2023-2024 table tennis national team selection match.
The national team players selected this time will participate in the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games, which have been postponed to next year, the 2024 Paris Olympics, and the Pyeongchang Asian Table Tennis Championships held in Korea next year and the Busan World Table Tennis Championships later.
The selection will be held at Cheongyang County Gymnasium in Chungcheongnam-do for 10 days from the 17th to the 27th.
From the 17th to the 21st, the men’s and women’s schedules will be separated and the first round (women’s 17th-19th morning, men’s 19th-21st afternoon) will be held. The first leg will be held in a preliminary league with 7 groups for men and women (1st and 2nd place in each group advance to the final match).
The players who passed the first round and the 2022 national team players will play the final match at the same place from the 22nd to the 27th. The final match, in which 24 male and female players, including the automatic selector, will compete, will be held in a full league format.
Players under the age of 13, 16 and 19 are also given an opportunity. In addition to this year’s junior representative, the winners of the individual singles high school (1st to 8th), middle school (1st to 3rd), elementary school (1st to 2nd), and college (1st to 3rd) national competitions can challenge the first round.
The general division based on the affiliated team is free to participate. Young players such as Lee Seung-soo (Daejeon Dongmun Elementary School) and Oh Jun-seong (Mirae Asset Securities), who went to work, are taking on the challenge.
The final number of participants is 20 males and females. There are 10 national team members and 10 standing army members. Players within the top 20 in the International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) world ranking are included in the national team through automatic selection (based on the ranking in the 2nd week of December), and the rest are selected in order of performance.
Accordingly, male Lim Jong-hun (KGC Ginseng Corporation, 16th), Jang Woo-jin (Army Sports Corps, 18th), female females Jeon Ji-hee (16th) and Shin Yu-bin (Korean Air, 19th) have already been confirmed as national representatives. 토토사이트
Shin Yu-bin, whose performance in the national team was insignificant due to an injury this year, dramatically improved her ranking by winning the WTT Contender Nova Gorica last month, making her selection for the national team dramatic and early.
Depending on the results of the self-evaluation match within the national team, the promotion and promotion of the national team and standing team members will be made. The national team’s priority selection players for this selection will participate in major competitions in 2023, but the standing army and national team members may change during the operation process. In 2024, the national team will also be selected again through an evaluation match within the standing army.
The Korea Table Tennis Association said, “Recently, it is true that the status of table tennis in Korea has weakened compared to before. At the Chengdu World Table Tennis Championships held this year, the men’s team struggled to maintain the top 4, but the women’s team stayed in the round of 16.” We are setting up a plan to lay the foundation for a new leap forward by intensively managing the members.
