World's Best Table Tennis stars to compete in Singapore, at the inaugural WTT Cup Finals 2021!
Some of the top players in the Men’s and Women’s Singles will be vying for the honour to become the first-ever WTT Cup Finals champions!
WTT has re-imagined, re-energised and re-defined this top 10 global sport to match audiences’ needs, create more touchpoints with fans and merge sport and entertainment to ultimately produce unmissable events. The WTT Cup Finals are the new season-ending events of the WTT Series, with two separate WTT Cup Finals – men’s singles and doubles and women’s singles and doubles. However, due to the ongoing challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s WTT Cup Finals Singapore will consist of a combined event featuring men’s and women’s 16-player singles draws only.
Both gender divisions will share equally in the overall prize pool of S$820,000.
* Entries as of 25 November 2021
Qualification for the WTT Cup Finals is based on the International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) World Rankings published on 16 November 2021, with no National Entry Restriction applied.
