USATT Para Classification

    USA Table Tennis follows the ITTF system of Para Classification and all related Rules.  All classifiers taking part in the classification process are educated and certified by the ITTF. The 2015 Athlete Classification Code and International Standards continue with the objective to standardize policies and procedures for classification across sports, while allowing the International Federations to adapt these to the needs of their sport.

     Athletes who are seeking international classification need to participate in a Factor 20 ITTF Para Tournament.

    USATT Player Classification System

    Prospective Para players should send inquiries to Para Program Director (Jasna Rather - 

    All prospective athletes would be informed of Para classification opportunities.  Forms will be sent for completion are:

    a. Consent form for classification,

    b. Medical eligibility form (completed by their healthcare practitioners), and

    c. Medical documentation attachments as indicated by the medical eligibility form. 

    Later, all the same documents need to be uploaded to ITTF Classification Link for international classification

    Upon assessment, a classification card would be generated.  The cards are printed on-site and given to the athlete once signed by the classifiers. The determination of classification would be fully explained. Any player determined to be ineligible has the opportunity to be re-seen by a different classifier at another time.

    If a player has had a medical change in condition (e.g. surgery, progression of a neurological condition, additional injuring event) which may have had an impact on their identified class, they would need to be seen by a doctor and the same forms mentioned above need to be completed before requesting to be seen by an ITTF certified classifier. 

    Classification Forms

    All classification forms are created by ITTF Para Table Tennis which are fully integrated with the current eligibility standards of the IPC.

    All IPC codes are identified on the classification cards for reference.

    No records will be kept by USATT nor by any classifiers in the US. International Classification Forms uploaded to the ITTF classification link would be kept safe by the ITTF.

    Education of Classifiers

    To assure full compliance with the ITTF PTT / IPC regulations for eligibility and testing, all classifiers who provide classification services are trained through the ITTF PTT classifier training seminars and programs. Any person interested to become an ITTF Classifier may attend an ITTF Classifier Seminar in order to become an internationally certified classifier.
