The men's team of Table Tennis 2020 during the 2020 Summer Olympics was held on 1-6 August 2021 in the Tokyo Metropolitan Gymnasium. With 16 teams competing, the event was won by the team from China, with Germany taking the silver medal and Japan taking bronze.

Format

The competition exists out of a single head-to-head knockout competition, with each match consisting of two single matches and one doubles match. The first team to win two matches advances to the next round, with the winner of the final winning the event.

Preview

Sixteen teams qualified for the event with China as the absolute favorites for the title. The nation had won all available Olympic titles since 2008, and its team featured the entire top 3 of the singles world rankings. Japan and Germany won silver and bronze in 2016 and once again seemed to battle for the remaining medals at the third- and second-seeded teams. South Korea, Sweden, and Brazil were some of the other big teams for the medals, with Chinese Taipei and France also seeded.
