The Chinese men’s and women’s national teams won the tournament,

which was held as a men’s and women’s team event, but the host country,

Korea, won a bronze medal in the men’s team event and the quarterfinals of the women’s team event,

earning the right to participate in the team event at the Paris Olympics.

This tournament was a box office success, with more foreigners, including Chinese and Japanese,

attending than domestic visitors, with ticket sales alone reaching 1.2 billion won and a cumulative audience of 30,000.

In particular, it is meaningful in that it successfully concluded the competition by re-hosting the competition,

which had many ups and downs, including being canceled due to COVID-19.

In addition, it was a competition that reaffirmed Busan’s capabilities in successfully hosting world-class competitions such as the Asian Games and the Korea-Japan World Cup.

BEXCO, Busan’s representative convention venue, has been transformed into a table tennis stadium.

As the large number of visitors crowded indoors, the city operated a comprehensive situation room 24 hours a day and cooperated closely with related organizations such as safety, food and beverage, transportation, medical care, and tourism support to maintain the best performance of participating athletes.

As a linked event to expand the base of daily sports,

the ‘International Table Tennis Federation President’s Cup Youth and Life Sports Competition’ was held simultaneously,

and the International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) board meeting was held from the 26th to the 27th.

At the ITTF Board of Directors, Gangneung City, Gangwon Special Self-Governing Province hosted the ‘2026 World Masters Table Tennis Championships‘.

The city of Busan evaluated that domestic and foreign tourists who visited Busan enjoyed the diverse charms of Busan along with table tennis,

thereby contributing to the revitalization of the local economy.

Busan Mayor Park Hyeong-jun said, “Commemorating the 100th anniversary of the introduction of Korean table tennis, this tournament,

which was held for the first time in Korea, was successfully completed with passionate interest and support from Busan citizens.

Based on the valuable experience gained from this tournament,

various large-scale sports competitions will be held in Busan.”

“We will move toward attracting and becoming a global hub city,” he said.
