The table tennis classification system is comprised of 10 functional classes for athletes with cerebral palsy, with amputations and other disabilities (les autres) and one class for athletes with intellectual disability.

Elbow and hand extension are achieved by a swinging movement initiated from the shoulder.Co-ordination of arm movement is significantly different from non-impaired arm.
 (CP: severe muscle stiffness in the whole body, reducing speed and precision of arm movement andreducing sitting balance.)

TT2 Elbow extension is sufficient and hand movements are well coordinated but without normal power.
 (CP: same as TT1 with almost normal playing arm.)

TT3 Minimal loss of function in playing hand. Slight changes in body position are secured by the freehand propping, holding or pushing at wheelchair or thigh. Lower part of body keeps in contact withthe back of the seat. Backward movements of the arm are reduced because of body balancedisorders.
 (CP: minimal limitations in control of both arms and severe stiffness in both legs.)

TT4 Normal arm and body movements. Body movements to increase reach only possible by using free arm to prop, hold or push at wheelchair or thigh. When starting with one hand forward body cannot lean forward optimally. Double above knee amputees with short stumps.
 (CP: moderate stiffness and reduction of precision of arm and body movements.)

TT5 Athlete may bend forward and backward without using the non-playing arm. Significant pushingactions with thighs or even feet. Wheelchair handling is optimal because of good body positioningbackward and forward. Some sideward movement is possible.
 (CP: slight to minimal stiffness or loss of precision in arms and body and some affection of the legs.)

TT6 Combination of disabilities in the playing arm and legs.
 (CP: moderate stiffness and loss of precision more in legs than in arms or involuntary movements inthe whole body.)

TT7 Both arms are affected. Single (playing arm) or double above or below elbow amputation orcombination of both.
 (CP: moderate involuntary movements.)

TT8 Severe disability in one or both legs. Single above knee or double below knee amputation.
(CP: some loss of precision and some stiffness in legs and arms.)

TT9 Good dynamic balance. Minimum disability in one or both arms or differential length in legs. Single below knee amputation.
(CP: slight loss of precision in one side of the body.)

TT10 Normal function in playing arm. Minimal loss in free arm. Amputation of the free arm up to 1/3 of the forearm.
(CP: minimal unvoluntary movements.)

TT11 Intellectual disabled athletes according to the INAS-FID/WHO definition
