Table tennis and para table tennis is one of 16 sports confirmed on the programme for the 2026 Commonwealth Games.

The Games will return to Australia, which last hosted at Gold Coast in 2018, and be staged by the state of Victoria – a new approach which moves away from a single host city.

The table tennis and para table tennis events will be in Geelong, the second largest city in Victoria which is about 70km south-west of the largest, Melbourne.

The Games take place in March 2026 and more sports are set to be added to the programme later this year.

Commonwealth Games Federation President Dame Louise Martin said: “The Commonwealth Games Federation is absolutely delighted to award the 2026 Commonwealth Games to Victoria. 

“Commonwealth Games Australia and the Victorian Government have set out a bold and innovative vision for hosting our major multi-sport event. In Victoria, we believe we have found the perfect partner for the next stage of our journey. 

“This a very special moment for the Commonwealth Sport Family and on behalf of the entire Movement, I would like to congratulate Commonwealth Games Australia and Victoria on their successful Games submission. We now look forward to a bright future as we work together to stage a Commonwealth Games like no other.”
