There are four table tennis competitions: men’s and women's singles, and men's and women’s team event at the Olympics.
All events follow a knockout (single elimination) format. For both singles competitions each match consists of the best four out seven games to at least 11 points, where the winner must win by at least two points.
There is a one minute break between games when players change ends, however, if both players are ready in less than a minute, play resumes. Each player is also allowed to take one 1-minute timeout per match. If the player who calls the timeout wishes to resume play in less than one minute, then play resumes.
