ITTF Eligibility Registration Announcement
The Proposition No.24 passed at the BoD in Suzhou and will be in effect as of 1 January 2016, which means that from 1 January all players under 15 years of age shall wait only 1 year provided that they have already the passport and never represented any other association. New rule comes into effect on 1st January, but because it is a change towards being more flexible and in favour of the players, the ITTF will implement it retrospectively, i.e. those U-15 on the list already can benefit also from the 1-year rule (on condition to have new passport and never represented any other association).
Under 15: 1 year, if the player has the new citizenship and never represented any other association.
3 years after the date of registration, if the player already represented any other association.
15, 16, 17 years old: 5 years waiting
18, 19, 20 years old: 7 years waiting
Older than 21 years old: 9 years waiting
