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

The events for the 2017 tour have been split into two tiers: World Tour Platinum and World Tour. The Platinum events offer higher prize money and more points towards the ITTF World Tour standings, which determine the qualifiers for the 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]
