With 11 Member Associations joining online and 2 proxies, ITTF President Petra Sörling addressed the meeting from her home in Sweden in the early hour of the morning.

President Sörling, an IOC Member, thanked all Member Associations for their work in promoting & guiding the sport in the vast Oceania region.

The ITTF-Oceania AGM also heard from Pacific Games Council Chief Executive Officer, Andrew Minogue, on the 2023 Pacific Games held in Honiara Solomon Islands. Table tennis is proud to be part of the Pacific Games since its inception in 1963.

Also in attendance was ITTF Secretary General Raul Calin, ITTF Executive Vice President and Table Tennis Australia President Graham Symons and ITTF Oceania Honorary Members, Patrick Gillmann, Phil Males and Graeme Ireland.

The AGM confirmed the election of the role of President and members of the Management Committee for a four (4) year term.

Anthony Moore was re-elected unopposed as President and joining him on the Management Committee are:
• Sarah Sandley (Australia)
• Carolyn Li (Fiji)
• James Ji Jr. (Guam)
• Benoit Coquelet (New Caledonia)

ITTF-Oceania has three positions on the ITTF Council and following this election Sarah Sandley, Carolyn Li and James Ji Jr. are also appointed to these roles.

Anthony Moore said “I am delighted with the opportunity to continue to serve as President of ITTF-Oceania. Although the Paris 2024 Games are only a matter of weeks away, we have our eyes firmly set on Brisbane 2032 as we look to provide real and tangible support to our Member Associations across the region. These next four years are crucial for us to all take advantage of a ‘Home Games’ on our doorstep and I am excited to lead the organisation as we come together with this focus.”

ITTF-Oceania will shortly announce the appointment of its new Chief Executive Officer.
