This will be the first time the 30-year-old will be part of a Singapore Table Tennis Association (STTA) team since Feng and the national sports association parted ways late last year.

The three-time Olympic medallist will compete in the women’s singles and team events at the biennial tournament, from April 9 to 16.

STTA senior high performance manager Eddy Tay said: “Feng has expressed interest to play at the Asian Table Tennis Championships and she has met the selection criteria.”

Feng and Gao Ning, 34, head a 10-strong squad for the tournament, announced by the STTA on Tuesday.

Gao, Clarence Chew, Pang Xue Jie, Maxxe Tay and Ethan Poh form the men’s team, while the women’s squad consist of Feng, Yee Herng Hwee, Zhang Wanling, Eunice Lim and Tan En Hui.
