I've lived in Lebanon for about 3 years and have a passport ...ever since 2016 I've come back to Melbourne and train at Coburg.

Noticing that Lebanon has no men on their table tennis team would it be possible for me to join their team freely even though I am not at the professional level yet?

I am planing on improving in the next 2 years until 2020 olympic games

Is there a certain level I must be before I can play in the Olympics for my country

Hi Dib,

There are qualification criteria for Olympics.  You would need to qualify through the Asia zone which as you would know is a very difficult task.  Each country doesn't get a right to send players.

However, don't let that turn you off, keep training hard and working to improve your game.

wow sounds so intense ....how much easier would it be compared to Australia qualifying ...what would the skill level be or what rank or ranking point would someone have to reach?

You would need to be in the top 50 in the World roughly.
