All new players and players who are to have their classification reviewed must be present in time for classification: the afternoon of the 27th of November. This means that all such players should arrive by the afternoon of the 26th of November (the day before the classification is scheduled) or the morning of the 27th of November at the latest. This is very important as players not present on time may not be classified.

All players should bring with them their medical diagnosis and any other medical information relevant to their classification. They should report to classification with these documents, dressed as if they are going to play a match and with all their table tennis equipment including sports chairs. All players and support staff are expected to cooperate fully in the classification process.
