History of Table Tennis in FISU

 

 

Table tennis is the youngest compulsory sport in the programme of the World University Games Summer but it has a long history within the FISU World University Championships. Since the Bucharest edition in 1971, table tennis quickly saw the domination of Asian countries. Although both ROK(Republic of Korea) and Japan have distinguished themselves repeatedly during these tournaments, it is the Chinese who dominated this event the most consistently. In the very first year that China participated in the World University Table Tennis Championships in 1984 in Gdansk (POL), all titles were taken by China outplaying the other 20 participating countries/regions. This supremacy, even if it slightly declined during the three subsequent championships, was once again confirmed in 1994 in Charleroi (BEL).

 

In fact, China has greatly contributed to the evolution of university table tennis, which is why it was included as an optional sport in the Summer Universiade in Fukuoka in 1995.

 

 

The continuously increasing number of participants, as well as a very high level of performance, finally provided table tennis the opportunity to join the list of compulsory sports at the Universiade in Izmir in 2005. In the last 35 years, table tennis showed excellent results and endorsed quality participation with almost 100 future World or Olympic competitors participating in the Universiades. Great efforts of the 2007 Organising Committee in Bangkok, as well as that of Belgrade and Shenzhen, have further strengthened this success and keep table tennis among the most spectacular events in the FISU World University Games Summer programme.
