European Championships

European Championship Qualification (Team) matches are part of the qualification system for team events in the European Championships. This is the premium team event for 50+ nations affiliated to the European Table Tennis Union (ETTU). The Championships are hosted biannually at a central venue by bidding cities and feature Europe’s leading players.

To qualify for the European Championships, national teams must play in the qualification event where there are three divisions – Championship, Challenge and Standard. Both England’s men and women are laying in the Championships Qualification Division, with the aim of reaching the finals in Luxembourg 2017.

Matches are played over a two year cycle, in a group format and consist of up to five singles rubbers (matches are only played to a result) on a home and away basis between teams of three/four players.
