2014 Para World Championship

Beijing, China

2014 Para World Championship

To qualify for the 2014 Para World Championship in China, a player has to fulfill factor point criteria by playing a few ITTF Para Tournaments in 2013 (90 factor points is the requirement for US Para athletes), and to qualify by ITTF Para World Ranking and/or results. If an athlete did not participate in any ITTF Para Tournaments by now, there is still a chance to get enough factor points from ITTF Para Tournaments by playing in Argentina Open, Mike Dempsey Memorial and Para Pan American Championship. Please contact Jasna Rather at jasna@usatt.org if you are planning to play in any of these tournaments. Also, please note that Costa Rica Open is canceled since the Para Pan American Championship will be in Costa Rica instead of Brazil.

90 factor points is approximately equivalent to 3 tournaments unless an athlete played 40 factor point tournament or 20 factor point tournament in Europe/Asia receiving additional 20 bonus factor points for playing on another continent, and playing in 50 factor points Para Pan American Championship.
