The 1999 World Table Tennis Championships were held in Eindhoven from August 2 to August 8, 1999.[1][2] The Championships were originally scheduled from April 26 to May 9 in Belgrade, Yugoslavia but were postponed after the NATO bombing of Yugoslavia during the Kosovo War in March 1999.[3] Individual events were relocated to Eindhoven and team competitions were moved to Kuala Lumpur in 2000.
