PARA TABLE TENNIS CLASSIFICATION


The object of this classification system is to group together those players who have a movement potential which is approximately equal.

Each individual class consists of players who have relatively similar abilities for performing basic table tennis techniques. This means that players with different types of impairments, and in various parts of the body, may reside in a single class, if their functional potential for beginning (service) and continuing a rally is nearly comparable.

There are currently 11 classes in the Para Table Tennis Committee (PTT):

- Classes 1 to 5 for wheelchair players (sitting table tennis)
- Classes 6 to 10 for standing players (standing table tennis)
- Class 11 for players with an intellectual disability
