This comes a week after the announcement that Liu Guoliang will become Chair of the newly formed WTT Council, taking overall leadership and responsibility for pioneering the future of table tennis.

WTT was set up by the ITTF in August 2019 to modernise its commercial business activities and realise the full potential of table tennis in order to compete and excel among the highest-profile sports in the world.

The WTT Board will oversee all WTT business activities and represent the interests of the shareholders.

"WTT is providing table tennis the platform it needs in order to grow and become one of the biggest sports on the planet, so I am truly excited to be involved in the leadership of WTT. In recent years, we have improved table tennis' status globally, but now we have an incredible opportunity to achieve our ambitious goals for the future," said Al-Mohannadi in a statement.

He brings a wealth of experience to WTT, having contributed greatly to the success of the ITTF both in his role as Deputy President (2014-present and 2005-2009) and previously as Vice President (2009-2014). Also an ITTF Executive Committee member, he has contributed to significant milestones, including the creation of the first ITTF Strategic Plan in 2018 and the ITTF's notable progress in good governance.

"Khalil Al-Mohannadi has achieved so much for our sport already and it is fantastic news for the table tennis community that his rich experience and expertise will be utilised for the benefit of WTT. The future of table tennis is looking brighter than ever," said Thomas Weikert, ITTF President.
