The 2011 World Table Tennis Championships will be played under the auspices of the International Table Tennis Federation. The World Championships have been awarded to the Netherlands Table Tennis Association, the NTTB.
The NTTB has contracted out the organization of the World Championships to the STN, the Foundation for Table Tennis Events in The Netherlands. The STN has appointed a Championships Director, Ton van Happen. Under his leadership an organizing committee was formed in 2010.
