BEIJING -- The International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) have announced Thursday that its world rankings remain the same as released in March due to current suspension of ITTF events caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The ITTF added that the rankings for April 2020 will be evaluated and released as soon as the Executive Committee passes judgement, which is expected to be no later than April 15. Then the rankings will be frozen until paddlers are back to action.

Due to the need to further evaluate implications related to postponement of ITTF events and travel restrictions, the current ITTF rankings remain the same as those released in March.

The ranking points corresponding to events that took place in March will be taken into consideration and added to the ITTF rankings before the April edition is released.

As for the 2020 ITTF Challenge Polish Open, which was suspended before the main draw started, a decision will be made on the ranking points distribution.
