Two imporant notes about factor 40 and 2010 World Championships

Only players who have been classified and have an International Classification Card by the date of the second entry deadline can enter a Fa 40 tournament in 2009. Thus there will only be classifiers observing at Factor 40 events this year.

In order to be considered for selection for the 2010 ITTF PTT World Championships, players must have an international classification, be on the ranking list and have achieved the tournament credit of 20 points. To achieve the tournament credit of 20 points, each player must have competed in a tournament of Fa 20 or Fa 40 between 1 October 2008 and 31 December 2009. Please note that no tournament credit points can be accumulated by participating to the regional championships.
