The Seamaster 2017 ITTF World Tour was the 22nd season of the International Table Tennis Federation's professional table tennis world tour.

The events for the 2017 tour were split into two tiers: World Tour Platinum and World Tour. The Platinum events offered higher prize money and more points towards the ITTF World Tour standings, which determined the qualifiers for the 2017 ITTF World Tour Grand Finals in December.[1][2][3]

On 12 January 2017 it was announced that Chinese shipping company Seamaster had agreed a four-year sponsorship deal with the ITTF World Tour.[4]

Standings[edit]

Singles[edit]

Points were accumulated during the singles tournaments at each of the twelve ITTF World Tour events.[3] The 15 men and 16 women who played in at least five events and accumulated the largest number of points were invited to play in the Grand Finals in Astana in December. Kazakhstan's Kirill Gerassimenko was also invited to take part in the men's singles event, to ensure that the host nation was represented.[20]
