In a blow to the first official World Table Tennis events the Chinese National Team has announced it will be withdrawing completely from the Middle East Hub. This announcement comes after the Hong Kong table tennis team withdrew from the Middle East Hub earlier this month. Hong Kong Head coach Chan Kong-wah said he was not prepared to take a risk with the Tokyo 2020 Olympics on the horizon, claiming that the coronavirus measures in place at the Lusail Sports Arena did not meet the standards of the Hong Kong Sports Institute.
